One of my highlights of each day is having dinner together with my family. Hablamos de todo lo que nos a pasado ese dia o hacemos follow up de otros temas. I love cooking for my family and take pride that my son absolutely loves my cooking. It’s music to my ears when I hear my son say this to his friends “Dude, you have to try my mom’s food”.
We are from Puerto Rico and unfortunately Latinos share the issue of higher type 2 diabetes rate across our community. I have seen three of my aunts suffer from this disease and was just told that I am on the border of it myself. When my Doctor told me this, I asked her what type of fruit and vegetables I could eat and which to stay away from. To my surprise she explained that over 75% of the fat in fresh avocados is naturally good fat making them a great substitute for foods high in bad (saturated) fat. She said avocados provide nutrition, fiber and dietary balance that children and adults need. I was so glad to hear this because at our home we love aguacates! Check out the site for some important facts about avocados that will back up what my doctor told me.(www.saboreaunohoy.com/aguacatesydiabetes)
So of course with this in mind I started thinking of different ways of incorporating avocados into our diet. This past weekend I had my prima and her family over for dinner and I made this appetizer with fresh Hass avocados and oh my gosh they were a hit!
My appetizers recipe titled: Avocado Wonton
- Hass Avocado
- Red onion
- White Vermont cheese
- Sun dried tomatoes
- Wonton wraps
Combine all the ingredients and wrap a small amount into each Wonton and fry.
Sauces for my recipe:
- Ponzu Sauce and thinly sliced green onions
- Salsa de guayaba and Orange Fruit spread
It’s this simple and incredibly delish avocado wonton. Enjoy!
