Recipe from my blog: http://limabeanlover.wordpress.com/2011/01/25/recipe-avocado-pesto/

Avocado Pesto

Makes about 3/4 cup

Ingredients:

1 medium ripe avocado

1 cup fresh basil, loosely packed

1/2 cup spinach, loosely packed

2 TBSPs pine nuts

2 TBSPs nutritional yeast

1 TSP minced garlic

1 TBSP olive oil

1/2 TSP salt

1/2 TSP coarsely ground black pepper

Directions:

Place all ingredients into a food processor and blend until smooth. This is great on spaghetti, but Ive also found its tasty slathered on pieces of crusty French bread for a snack.

I tried making this and it just tasted... strange, but I think it was the noodles I used. Haha! I'd like to try it with regular noodles I think I used some kind of brown rice noodles.

I really want to try this: it looks so tasty. Also it solves the problem of what to give Mr Flared-trousers who doesn't like pasta (strange man!) - I'm sure he would love it slathered on French bread.
