CINCO DE MAYO RECIPES
‘MUY ESPECIAL’ RECIPES FOR CINCO DE MAYO MENU CONSIDER SPECIAL DIETARY NEEDS FOR THOSE WITH INTOLERANCE TO LACTOSE OR GLUTEN
Goat Milk Yogurt and Kefir from Redwood Hill Farm and Green Valley Organics Lactose Free
Real Dairy Yogurt, Kefir and Sour Cream Make it a Celebration for Everyone
SEBASTOPOL, Calif. (March 22, 2012)– For people living with lactose intolerance Cinco de Mayo can go quickly from “Ole!” to “Oh, no!” Sour cream and cheese are mainstays of Mexican food and even the desserts can present issues for those that experience difficulty digesting lactose.
To the digestive rescue is Redwood Hill Farm and Green Valley Organics, “Dairy’s Dynamic Duo,” with a complete menu for Cinco de Mayo. Goat milk and lactose free real cow dairy yogurt and kefir and lactose free sour cream replace ingredients that can be troubling to tummies in these recipes that include a creamy avocado soup, crunchy tacos drizzled with spiced crema and a moist “Tres Leches” cake.
“All of our Green Valley Organics real dairy products are lactose free as well as gluten free,” said Jennifer Bice, owner of Redwood Hill Farm & Creamery. “Our Redwood Hill Farm line of yogurt and kefir is made from Grade A goat milk and because goat milk is easier to digest for most people with 25 percent less lactose than cow milk, it is often an excellent replacement for traditional cow milk products.”
This Cinco de Mayo celebrate with these ‘delicioso’ dishes for a fiesta that everyone can enjoy.
Chilled Avocado Soup with Roasted Corn and Pico de Gallo Garnish
Cool and creamy, this chilled avocado soup refreshes with a satisfying tanginess from Redwood Hill Farm Plain Kefir even on the hottest summer days. It’s perfect for a quick entrée soup for the family, or portioned into shot glasses and topped with grilled shrimp for a party-worthy appetizer. This recipe is gluten free, vegetarian and rich in healthful fats.
Chicken Tinga Tacos with Avocado Chile Crema
and Chipotle Lime Slaw
Fun to say and even more fun to eat, chicken tinga tacos are extra tender and moist due to a dip in Green Valley Organics Plain Kefir and a slow roast in the oven (or crock pot). Short on time? Simply marinate the chicken for one hour, skip the oven and fire up the grill. Top the tacos with avocado chile crema made with Green Valley Organics Sour Cream and a chipotle lime slaw that uses Green Valley Organics Plain Yogurt. This recipe is lactose free; for a gluten-free version, use corn tortillas.
Individual Tres Leches Cakes*
This “light on the lactose” Tres Leches or “three milks” cake is a classic Mexican dessert traditionally made with yellow cake drenched with sweetened condensed milk, evaporated milk and cream; topped with whipped cream and a cherry. We make ours in individual dessert cups (no sharing required!). The recipe uses Green Valley Organics Sour Cream in the cake batter and switches out the milks with creamy Redwood Hill Farm goat milk yogurt and Mango Orange Pineapple Kefir mixed with a splash of evaporated milk and vanilla. The result is a light and refreshing fruity dessert.
*Recipe includes modifications to make this recipe lactose free. For a gluten-free cake, use a gluten free flour or cake mix.
