So sometimes life gives us happy accidents…like when I discovered that with slight alterations, the sauce I love to serve on pasta also makes an amazing spread or dip for crackers and veggie sticks. This spread is flavourful, healthy and super easy to make.
1 ½ avocadoes – peeled and pitted
The juice and zest of ½ a lemon
1-2 cloves garlic (or more if you like garlic!)
A handful fresh basil leaves –about ½ cup packed
A handful fresh kale or spinach leaves (optional)
1 tsp salt
¼ tsp pepper
¼ cup pistachios or walnuts (optional)
Put everything in a food processor and whirl until you have a smooth spread. Serve on crackers or with veggie sticks. I especially love this dip on endive leaves and garlick-y crackers.
