I was trying to make some pesto, but for some reason the basil wasn’t as basil..y as I expected it to be. I tweaked it a bit by adding some avocado, lemon, and smoked paprika and this delicious concoction happened! Use it as a dip, spread, or sauce on your favorite veggies or proteins. Enjoy!!!❤❤❤
Avocado and Basil Pesto
- 4 ounces fresh basil
- 1/3 cup walnuts
- 2 avocados
- 1/2 cup olive oil
- 2 cloves garlic
- 2 tsp smoked paprika
- lemon juice from one lemon

- In a food processor add the basil, walnuts, garlic, avocados, lemon juice, and seasonings. Pulse until creamy.
- With food processor on high, slowly drizzle in the olive oil, scraping sides of bowl as needed.
- Adjust the seasoning as needed. Store pesto in jars or airtight container.
