Transitioning to a vegetarian or vegan diet can be a challenge for some because it requires eating different foods that what they are used to. Many new vegans complain about the lack of flavor in their new healthy food. That’s because their ‘flavor’ that they are used to is loads of oil and fat which healthy plant based food is lacking. My advise to you is to spice things up with spices instead of salt and fat, or specifically with salsa!

Salsa morita has got to be one of my favorite salsas of all time!

Long ago before I even thought about creating Healthish Foodie, I was studying Spanish with an exchange program from my university (Go Lutes!). I traveled to Oaxaca, Mexico with about 20 other students and could barely speak Spanish.

They assigned all of us a different host family to live with to be sure that we had an authentic experience. My study abroad program was literally the BEST time of my life and I couldn’t have asked for a better host family.

Every morning my host mom would make me breakfast before I headed out to classes. It was usually scrabbled eggs with tomato and onion, tortillas and fruit. This may sound basic, but holy cow its all in the salsa!

She would also make this AMAZING salsa once a week that I would always ask for and put on EVERYTHING!!

Before I went back home at the end of the program I HAD to have that recipe. I would probably die from spontaneous combustion without drowning my food in this salsa.

So I had to ask and she made it right in front of me!
