A delicious & versatile creamy Pesto Sauce.
This sauce is the Bees Knees!! I don’t think I’ve ever used that expression before, so this sauce must be GOOD! Believe me, it’s amazing!!
I have served this sauce with my Roasted Butternut Cous Cous Salad with Pesto Dressing and my Chicken Pasta with Herby Avocado Pesto Sauce so far and I don’t plan to stop developing recipes around this sauce any time soon.
It would be incredible with roast vegetables, steamed vegetables, as a dip with veggies and crackers. You could have this Pesto Sauce with brown rice and cauliflower, or serve it with sweet potato chips. The options are endless.
This Pesto Sauce is so quick and easy to whip up, it literally takes me 5 minutes from start to finish, there’s no chopping or preparation involved at all – just throw everything into the blender, whizz it up and that’s it!
Pour this lovely sauce over almost anything and you’ve got yourself a pop of creamy, herby, healthy flavour that’s hard to beat.
I love that this sauce is oil free, the oils in the avocado are sufficient and make this sauce so silky smooth and give it a beautiful green colour that you can’t achieve without the avocado.
It’s just yum and I think you should go and make some right now so that we can talk about how delicious it is. Lemme know what you think!! I’d love to hear how your sauce turns out and what you serve it with.
