VEGAN HEAVEN MEXICO presents – FLOR DE ZOMPANTLE
The first time I have seen this flower on the market was January. These red coloured flowers, shaped like a little sword immediately caught my attention.
When I learned about the zompantle tree I found it even more fascinating – how our ancestors figured out this highly dangerous plant has this little beauties on it, and they are edible. Nature does not stops surprising me. Enjoy your meeting with the FLOR DE ZOMPANTLE as much as I did when we met first time. Bon provecho.
VEGAN HEAVEN MEXICO presents – HUITLACOCHE
‘First time we met on the market. I wanted to know more about it, so I ordered a quesadilla with this unpronuncable thing in it.’
If you have 2.27 minutes and a curiosity what I am talking about you are in the right place to know more abou HUITLACOCHE. Weird and ugly but full of goodness, very delicious and super easy to prepare to eat. Welcome in the world of ‘corn fungus’. I guarantee these are the moments of a long lasting love story. Enjoy every moments! Bon provecho.
