Seriously Green Sauce

This is a super simple, super fast sauce.

 Light but creamy it is delicious on pasta and zucchini noodles. Or you can drizzle it over chicken or salmon for an extra flavour boost.

  • 75g spinach
  • 15 fresh basil leaves
  • 1/2 medium avocado, very ripe
  • 1 tsp olive oil
  • 1 clove garlic
  • 50ml fresh lemon juice
  • Good pinch salt

Pop all of the ingredients into a high powered blender/bullet and blitz until smooth.

If the sauce is too thick add in a splash of water to help it blend.

If you’re using a Thermomix/Bellini or any of their cousins, you’ll need to use speed 6 for 10 seconds, scrape down and repeat and then turn up to speed 10 for 6 seconds at a time, scrape down and repeat as required until smooth

If macros are important to you, here’s the breakdown for a heaped tablespoon (about 1/5 of the recipe)

We like to have ours with zucchini noodles.

Use a spiralizer for the zucchini, then add the zoodles into a hot frying pan. Add in enough sauce to coat the zoodles and stir until warm.

Extra delicious if you top them with some grilled chicken, tomatoes and pine nuts!
