Lemon Basil “Cream” Sauce

There is nothing better when food feels like it is giving you a big hug.  Normally, bear-hug foods are typically terrible for you.  Foods in this category would be anything with thick, cheesy cream sauces, dense cookies and cakes, flaky pie crusts, buttery noodles and anything else that is super heavy and starchy.

Time to clean the drool up off your shirt and counter folks! I have seen a lot of cream sauces made with avocado, so I decided to give it a try for myself.  It did NOT disappoint.  You can put it on anything and everything and it is super easy to make.

Ingredients:

  • 2 tbsp of fresh basil
  • 1/2 squeezed lemon
  • 1 tsp fresh oregano
  • 2 tbsp avocado oil
  • 1 avocado
  • salt and pepper to taste IF NEEDED

Directions:

  • Blend until completely smooth in blender.

Blended and ready to use.

I cooked up some mushrooms, zucchini/daikon noodles, shallots, garlic and spices and ground turkey and poured the avocado cream sauce over and mixed.  HOLY BALLS this was delicious!!!!
