Hey there, babes! Today I’m sharing a quick an easy recipe to liven up SO many dishes. I’ve been testing out an avocado basil pesto this past month and I finally got it right! Mixing just a bit of olive oil and nuts with the creamy texture and flavor of an avocado, was THE perfect touch.
I’m posting a new FALL cauliflower crust PIZZA next week using this avocado basil pesto as the base. Trust me, y’all are going to want to devour it! Other great things to put this spread on are: salmon, spaghetti squash, roasted veggies, baked/grilled chicken, flank steak and grilled shrimp. This pesto is a great way to add flavor to proteins and/or veggies.
Please leave a comment below with any questions you have. Happy cooking!
