avocado pesto

Love avocados? Love pesto? Can't get enough omega-3s? Then this 5-minute recipe for you!

And I mean, why not add some vitamins K, C, B5, B6, E, Potassium, and Folate to your pesto? Plant-based and full of natural, unprocessed fats to help you absorb some of those fat-soluble vitamins!

Ingredients

  • 1 cups frozen peas, thawed
  • ½ cup water
  • 1 avocado
  • 2 cups basil, packed loosely
  • 1 lemon, juiced
  • ½ tablespoon garlic granules or 2-3 cloves of fresh garlic
  • ½ cup walnuts
  • pepper and sea salt, to taste

Instructions

  1. Add peas and water to a blender and blend until smooth. Add the avocado, ½ the basil leaves, lemon juice, garlic, black pepper, and salt. Blend just until the avocados are broken up and creamy.
  2. Add the remaining basil and walnuts. Blend for just a few seconds until the basil and nuts are chopped to small pieces.
  3. Serve or store in an airtight container for later use. Best eaten within 1 to 2 days.

Enjoy with some veggies, zucchini spaghetti, raw crackers, buckwheat crackers... you know the drill.
