Huevos Rancheros

You love huevos rancheros, but they're not on the Plant Paradox diet. Or are they? My Lectin Free Gourmet huevos rancheros will have you saying "Ole" again.


Lectin Free Gourmet Huevos Rancheros

There's nothing like breakfast for dinner featuring huevos rancheros. The deep fried corn tortilla, the beans, the cheese, the [sound of a needle scratching a vinyl record]......OH CRAP! All those ingredients have the kind of lectins your body doesn't like.


It's seemed like an impossible quest turning a lectin bomb like huevos rancheros into a lectin-free edible — and delicious — friend. But this Lectin Free Gourmet loves a good challenge.


Down to the fried grain-free tortilla, these LFG huevos rancheros taste legit. When poached eggs (a.k.a. sex on a plate) are cooked to perfection, their molten yolks provide the "smother" for this dish. Toasted pine nuts replace beans, and taste really amazing. Old standards like pico, cheese (grassfed), cilantro, picante and crema (grassfed yogurt) make this LFG version undeniably authentic.
