Arepas guacamole and arugulaHere is an easy suggestion for a healthy vegetarian and gluten free meal. I like arepas because they are filling, crispy and tasty – a great healthier alternative to a sandwich.

INGREDIENTS (makes 4 stuffed arepas):

  • 4 arepas (see recipe and instructions here)
  • ½ portion of guacamole (see recipe here)
  • 2 handfuls of arugula salad
  • 12 kalamata olives, cut in half
  • ½ cup of shredded mozzarella cheese (optional)


  1. Make arepas according to the recipe.
  2. While the arepas are cooking/baking, make the guacamole according to recipe.
  3. Once the arepas are done, cut along the edge and divide each into two parts. Immediately sprinkle shredded cheese to melt in between the arepas (or skip this part for a healthier meal) and stuff with arugula salad, guacamole, and 6 kalamata olive halves.
  4. Serve and enjoy.
