Creamy Avodado Pesto!

This turned out so delicious! I had mine with zucchini “noodles”, microwaved for 1 minute before serving the pesto sauce on top, and it was decadent and so tasty!! This recipe is both oil and nut free. I did use some low fat cottage cheese for added protein, optional, or subs for lentils or nut of choice.

Creamy dreamy yum!!

1 avocado
1 sprig thyme
1cup basil
2/3 cup cottage cheese
3 cups spinach
2 cloves garlic
1/2 lemon

Blend the above well until creamy as desired.

Serve over pasta or spiralized zucchini to your choosing. I spiralized my raw zucchini, then microwaved for 1 minute to keep crispy but warm and then served pesto over it, and the result was just perfect!
