Fancy a slice? Here is a new and super yummy take on our beloved avocado. (Yup, I’m nuts about them). The other day while shopping at the market I spotted the most beautiful bunch of rucola leaves and some super ripe avocados. So, feeling adventurous and inspired my Megan, I decided to put my own twist on the avocado goodness with a fun recipe of rucola and avocado pesto. I added a bit of freshly ground parmesan, some garlic, beautiful spices to the mix and ta-dah - pesto perfection!
While I was putting the finishing touches, Balazs toasted bread, topped it off with slices of juicy tomatoes and we had the most scrumptious lunch on the balcony! Btw: Super easy and incredibly healthy. Enjoy.
Here is the recipe if you fancy giving it a go:
Rucola & Avocado Pesto
(Adapted from Megan-Joy)
* 1 ripe avocado
* two big handfuls of fresh rucola
* 3 cloves garlic
* 2 tablespoons freshly grated Parmesan cheese.
* 1 tablespoon wine vinegar
* 2 tablespoons extra virgin olive oil
* sea salt
* freshly grounded pepper
* red paprika powder
Wash your rucola leaves and peel your avocado. Next place the pre-cut avocado, 2 handfuls of rucola in the blender with about 1/4 cup of filtered water. Start blending. Next add the garlic, the vinegar, 2 tablespoons of olive oil and the Parmesan to the mix and blend again. Keep blending till you get beautifully thick, creamy consistence.
What's your favourite meal for a summer lunch? xo
