    • Avocado is always good for Vata types because it is quite a heavy oil and also nutritious.
      Actually all the mentioned ingredients are good for Vata. Sounds good.
      Mostly people have raw zucchini pasta which is nice but I could imagine that slightly cooking it would be nice in cooler weather and should be better for Vata.

  1. I found this recipe some months ago, and vowed to try it, but only got around to it tonight (we had to get a julienne slicer, for one thing). Wow! So good. I went ultra-simple, with just olive oil, mayo, lemon, salt & pepper, and even though the avocado was not QUITE as ripe as I would have liked, the end result was so rich and good. Thank you so much.

    What would you think of including artichoke heart, either with — or in place of — the avocado?
