TOTALLY OIL FREE!!
I created this recipe specially for my son who loves the combination of sweet, salty and sour. I know many dont like it but for those of you who do this is a very interesting combination of flavors and textures. It can be made pure vegetarian and you can also play around with the stuffing, keeping in mind that one has to stuff the lychee so everything has to be chopped fine and blended well. I used avocados and chicken for my stuffing as both are a hot favorite with my son.
1 can of lychees drained, and keep aside 2 tablespoons of the lychee syrup
FOR THE STUFFING:
1/2 cup of cooked finely shredded chicken breast
1/2 cup of mashed avocado
2 tablespoons of nuts of your choice, chopped into tiny bits
1/4 cup of finely chopped cucumbers
1 teaspoon of good quality mustard
1 teaspoon of sugar
1 teaspoon of lemon juice
salt and pepper to taste
combine the chicken, avocado, cucumbers and mix well. Mix the lychee syrup with the sugar, mustard, lemon juice and salt and pepper. Lastly add the nuts. Mix well and then with your fingers fill each lychee with the stuffing. SERVE IMMEDIATELY…Makes an excellent starter for a meal
TIP: to prevent the avocado from discoloring, add the dressing to it and it will retain its lovely green color
