With basil and pine nuts, this creamy pesto lends itself to classic pesto flavors with a twist. This pesto is actually oil free, yet still rich and creamy. It’s packed with fiber-boosting broccoli that you can’t even taste. The secret ingredient is the wonderful avocado, which brings all the flavors together and adds a wonderful silky green color and texture.
This Creamy Avocado Pesto coats pasta wonderfully but is also extremely versatile. Because it doesn’t contain any dairy, it makes a great dish to pack for picnics and the beach. I made this dish as a side dish but to make it an entree, just add a few ounces of your favorite protein. Enjoy!
