black pepper guacamole

guacamole is a culinary outlaw. guacamole recipes (not created equal) were meant not to be followed. when preparing guacamole for a large group for example, you graciously leave out the chiles or the cayenne, mindful of the many mild palates among the masses. on the other hand, habaneros make a great substitution for jalapenos and perhaps you are making guacamole for just you and you enjoy five alarms ringing with every dip and bite. or when you are preparing guacamole, occasionally spooning a taste while stirring, you think it could use more salt even after you diligently apportioned the recommended amount. guacamole is an outlaw and a great partner for those that feel their very presence in the kitchen is a crime. it doesn’t matter when you mess up and it usually tastes good when you break the recipe rules.
if no guacamole recipes are created equal, and rarely are they followed anyway, it stands that no matter how you do it, it is always a culinary adventure.
for the culinary assignment i am sharing a my latest inspired guacamole recipe. the adventurous ingredient is black pepper essential oil. and in light of all that can be replaceable about guacamole, i have also included a couple of suggested substitutions.

black pepper guacamole recipe:

4-5 avocados, cut in chunks
2 tomatoes, chopped
1 lemon, squeezed
1 lime, squeezed
1/2 bunch green onions, chopped
fresh cilantro, chopped
1 jalapeno, chopped
1 tsp sea salt
1 tsp agave nectar
1 drop black pepper essential oil or
(optional) 1 drop cilantro essential oil or
(optional) 1 drop lime essential oil

add chopped avocados to mixing bowl. gently stir in lemon and lime juice. do not mash.

stir in chopped tomatoes, green onions, jalapenos and cilantro.

add salt and agave nectar. add one drop black pepper oil or cilantro essential oil or lime essential oil (do not use more than one drop of any oil- the flavor will absolutely overpower your guacamole).

culinary adventure assignment.

I.S.3-show me what you're working with-SE

adventureclubinteractive wants to know what’s cooking! 

this memorial day 65% of americans will be barbecuing (second place to the fourth of july when 71% of americans will be barbecuing). if you plan to host or attend a memorial day barbecue next monday, there is an 87% chance that hamburgers, steaks, chicken or hot dogs are on the menu. there is almost a 100% chance that corn will be offered as a side dish and that barbecue sauce will be provided.

food is a requisite on holidays, for celebrations, community gatherings and get-togethers. surely we come to expect the traditional dish in accordance with the tradition…
but do you ever just get bored and tired of the barbecue sauce at the barbecue?

this week, adventureclubinteractive would like you to share recipes, techniques, and tips that wouldn’t typically make the statistics. recipes that are adventurous, ingredients that are exotic, combinations that are unusual, and preparations that are daring…
feel free to document your culinary endeavors in any format (written summary, photos, videos, do-it-yourself instructions, etc.) but please include a recipe for each submission!

culinary adventure assignment ideas:

  • choose a bizarre ingredient to substitute or add to an old favorite recipe.
    maybe incorporate a bizarre ingredient in multiple recipes throughout the week!
  • attempt to prepare food with an appliance or kitchen tool you are not accustomed to using or that you often neglect. or share unique techniques to use common kitchen items in uncommon ways.
  • forget the statistics. be the outlier. maybe you are attending a barbecue. contribute to the potluck with an outrageous side dish that doesn’t have barbecue sauce. observe the reactions.
  • share a recipe for a timely, laborious, expensive, complex, elegant dish.
    share a recipe that a two year old could attempt to make.
    share a secret recipe. if you don’t know the secret, get in the kitchen and figure it out.

other ways to oregano

“the oil of humility and non-attachement”

“trust me, cheech, this is oregano. the only thing getting baked with that herb is lasagna.”

oregano! the culinary herb, the pizza topping, the household plant… beloved, common, essential and versatile…! adventureclubinteractive invites you to explore another way to apply oregano- natures most powerful antioxidant and essential oil- to your life…

with its tangy, spicy, and lingering warm fragrance- most are unaware that the oregano plant is from the mint family. the essential oil of oregano is steam distilled from the leaves of the plant.  the oil is an extremely effective antibiotic. it is antifungal, antiparasitic, antiseptic, antiviral, and an immune stimulant.

if you find yourself coming down with an ailment- whether the common cold or a serious lung infection- by loosening phlegm it can can calm coughing spells. immediately begin to apply a few drops of oregano to the bottoms of your feet. repeat every few hours as ailments persist.

oregano essential oil treats athlete’s foot and other fungal infections, warts, skin tags, psoriasis and canker sores. apply topically to the site of the infection. oregano stimulates the stomach and the appetite. it may even cure your hiccups!

take CAUTION because oregano is a hot oil. when applying oregano, dilute with a carrier oil, such as fractionated coconut oil.

take oregano essential oil internally (place 2-3 drops in an empty gel capsule) for immune support, to combat candida, intestinal parasites, mRSA, pneumonia, staph infections and more.

energetically, oregano helps to remove blockages and clear negative energy.  oregano allows us to release negative attachments and materialism, and live in non-attachement. oregano is also very relaxing and may help some combat sleeplessness or insomnia.
