Creamy Avocado Pesto


There’s nothing like the taste of Pesto in my opinion! The herbal earthiness of it is tantalizing. I made this one with only a touch of added oil. The avocado makes it very creamy.

Put everything into the blender and start pulsing it as you slowly add the water. The aroma is mouth watering. Enjoy on a gluten-free pasta or spaghetti squash!
