Creamy Avocado Pesto

Recipe and photos by Jordan Pie

Green noodles are a tasty alternative to conventional pasta, and topping them with this creamy avocado pesto sauce makes them taste even better! This easy avocado pesto sauce is packed with fresh basil, garlic cloves, and lemon juice! It’s blended up in a food processor (or blender) for a super quick and easy flavor bomb that can be added to any meal. Mix it through zoodles (zucchini noodles) or shirataki noodles. You can also serve the sauce with steak, fried eggs, roasted sweet potato fries or use it as a dip. It’s so versatile.
