Avocado Pesto

IMG_5190
This simple creamy pasta sauce is perfect on spiralized noodles. Individual portions freeze well for quick leftover meals. Multiply recipe according to # of avocados. Freezing avocados is unfamiliar to me. I think most of the change that occurs in freezing is shape/structure, which is why pureed avocado (in the form of this pesto or guacamole) seems ideal. This technique allows you to go crazy when you see a great sale!

1 avocado
1-2 cloves raw garlic
1/2 tsp salt
ground black pepper, to taste
1/4 C fresh basil
squeeze of lemon, or small splash of apple cider vinegar

Blend until smooth. I like this best served warm over zucchini/cucumber noodles that are sprinkled with salt and pepper.
