Creamy Avocado Pesto

Paleo.Grain-free.Gluten-free.Suger-free.Hastle-free.Delicious

Ingredients:

1/4 cup Olive Oil

2 ripe Avocados*

1 cup Fresh Basil Leaves

3 cloves Garlic

1/4 cup Pine Nuts

2 tbs Lemon Juice

1/2 tsp salt*

*Notes: 

*I used the large hass avocados

*I used coarse Himalayan pink salt. I like the taste better; however, sea salt will work just as well

Directions:

1. Using a food processor, finely chop avocados, basil, garlic, nuts, lemon juice, and salt.

2. While the processor is still chopping, add a slow, steady stream of olive oil until you achieve a creamed, emulsified consistency.*

3. Enjoy!

*Notes: 

* The final consistency should resemble that of a thick whipped cream or mouse.

* For the perfect grain-free/ gluten-free meal, top a bed of sautéed zucchini noodles or baked spaghetti squash with this pesto. You could even make a pesto pizza. I have made a delicious pesto pizza, and I will have the recipe uploaded shortly. Stay tuned!

How to Bake a Sweet Potato

Ingredients:

Sweet Potatoes

Oil*

Directions:

  1. Preheat oven to 400 degrees
  2. With a fork, pierce the potatoes all over
  3. Oil sweet potatoes with a generous amount of oil
  4. Using foil, wrap each potato
  5. Bake for 40-60 minutes or until the potatoes are soft when squeezed
  6. To open, use a sharp knife to cut a line down the center of each sweet potato, squeeze the ends and slightly push ends together.

*I use coconut oil because it has a high smoke point. Therefore, the 400 degree temperatures in the oven will not cause the oil to oxidize and release free radicals.
