It's also super versatile. You can use it as a sauce, a dip, a dressing, a marinade - you name it! Plus the color is so amazing and vibrant...it is a great way to get kids and picky eaters alike to eat their greens.
This sauce is certainly something my staff and I can feel good about eating! In this instance, this delicious green sauce was used to go with pasta. Try it with pasta, veggies, fish, steak, crackers - whatever!
Prep/"Cook" Time: 15 minutes
Servings: makes about 3 cups
You Will Need:
- 5 cups baby spinach
- 1 ripe avocado, halved and pitted
- 1 cup fresh basil
- 1 cup cold pressed extra virgin olive oil
- 1 large garlic clove, sliced
- juice of 2 limes
- 1/2 tsp fine sea salt
- Combine all ingredients listed into a food processor and pulse to start, then process on low until smooth and creamy. That is seriously it!
*If necessary, put half the ingredients in, blend to shrink, and then put the rest in (see above photo for example). It seems like it won't all fit, but the spinach shrinks down a lot when processed.
What will you use this green sauce for?
