Nopal Leaves

Nopales, also known as nopalitos, are the young pads of the Opuntia ficus-indica cactus. Nopales have a moist crunchy texture with a slightly slimy texture similar to okra. They're eaten as a vegetable in Mexico after the spines have been removed and they're a good source of fiber, vitamins A and C, niacin, calcium, and iron. Nopalitos are the tender young pads of the prickly pear cactus and can be eaten fresh or cooked. They're available canned and jarred in brine, but they taste better if you cook them yourself. To prepare nopalitos, remove the spines and cut off the flat, round "window" on the top of each pad. Rinse well. Nopales are a good source of fiber, vitamins A and C, niacin, calcium, and iron. Nopalitos can also be eaten raw or pickled in vinegar with onions and hot peppers. They're often sliced and used in salads or eaten with eggs. Nopales can also be boiled and mashed with cream, butter, and seasonings to form a side dish. Nopalitos are often fried and served with eggs, rice and beans for breakfast. They're sometimes added to soups and stews for flavor, color, and nutrients. Nopales can be stored in the refrigerator for several days. Be sure to remove all spines before eating. Canned and jarred nopalitos can be stored unopened at room temperature for up to a year. Once opened, they should be sealed and stored in the refrigerator where they will keep for 1-2 weeks. Cut the nopales into small, quarter-sized pieces and remove all of the thorns with a knife. Nopales can be eaten raw or cooked in several dishes such as cactus salad, Mexican-style pickles, or nopalitos tacos. Preparing nopales does not need to be difficult you just have to know how to do it. People who ate this plant [or parts of the plant, such as the young pads regularly had very little to no signs of hypertension (high blood pressure), and experienced increased insulin sensitivity (i.e., reduced risk of type II diabetes). The study showed that nopales improved the health status of people with diabetes, hypertension, or both.
