So - I've made magic. And I'm super excited to share this new recipe!
I've made this a few times now and, most excitingly, will be making it for the Yorkshire Vegan Festival this weekend at our ZOODLE stall.
So, had to get it perfect!
This baby is perfect raw pesto, but with avocado to add creaminess. And boy, is it creamy.
Time: 15 minutes
You'll Need: A food processor or great blender
(If doing raw noodles - a spiralizer also)
2 perfectly ripe avocados
4 cups of fresh basil (have as much as possible at hand!)
1/2 cup raw pine nuts
Juice of 2 lemons
2 garlic cloves
And if serving with noodles - 2 Courgettes/Zucchinis
Combine all ingredients in your blender and blend very gradually, stopping to move the ingredients around with a spoon if necessary. Continue pulsing and blending until a perfectly textured pesto.
Taste when the texture is right and season to taste.
If using a food processor - just process until perfect!
For Raw Noodles:
Work the two courgettes through a sprializer and leave in a large bowl.
Add an optional squeeze of lemon juice to keep fresh!
For serving - pour your pesto on top of the noodles, mix together well and finish off with some cherry tomatoes.
