Magical Avocado. All I can say is YUM! Thanks to Bazu for cluing us all into this delicious snack. I had to change it slightly based on my ingredients on hand…I used gomashio, tore off pieces of nori from a nori sheet, and dotted the avocado with prepared wasabi. Rob loved this as well and told me to make a magical avocado anytime. Thanks again Bazu!!! 😀
We also tried the Smokey Black Bean Dip from Sara’s blog – I Like to Cook. I ended up picking out a really, REALLY strong red onion at the store so that kind of threw off the taste a bit. Other than that it was delicious. I am definitely going to make this again…hopefully I’ll get a less intense red onion next time 🙂 The recipe was also a cinch to prepare and makes for a great snack.
We finally made it over to Super H Mart in Niles, IL. It was relatively easy to find coming from the NW suburbs. The store was huge! We had a great time exploring the store and I found a few different brands of tofu to try. They had some excellent prices on fresh herbs too. A friendly shopper told us to take our receipt to this table they had set up past the checkout lanes. They give you free stuff based on how much you spent. We got a bowl of microwavable rice (Rob said he’s going to try it out at work as we don’t own a microwave, never have) and a “beef flavored” noodle bowl that is actually vegan and made with TVP. Yay! Free Stuff! Super H Mart rocks!!!
