It’s not a pesto, it’s not a chimichurri, it’s a magic sauce perfectly suited for spring.

Make it and put it on everything. Roasted veggies, toast, pasta, burritos or tacos, a veggie burger — I mean, anything.

No need to be super precise in measuring…personalize it according to your flavor preferences.

This is a terrible picture.
It’s better than it looks.

Magic Spring Sauce

1 bunch flat leaf parsley
1-2 bunch(es) cilantro
2-4 cloves garlic
1 avocado
Lime juice (lemon would do fine)
1/2 C (or so) oil (Thrive Algae Oil is my favorite for health reasons)
Optional 1/4-1/2 C nuts — pistachios or walnuts would be great
Optional jalapeno or chili pepper flakes if you like some kick

Put everything in a food processor or blender and mix it up!

Mine was thicker, more spreadable and sauce-y.
It could also be a pesto-like dip by adding more oil after blending
or a thicker veggie dip with less oil
or a salad dressing by adding a little water.

You know I’m a fan of getting extra nutrients in super sly ways, so you could also play with adding a spoonful of miso or some white beans or a little nutritional yeast…and then adjust the oil/water for desired thickness.

The Magic Sauce has limitless potential!!

Let me know if you try it 🙂

I love biscuits. My mom used to make biscuits like these, free form and oversized, for breakfast and we'd slather them with butter and honey. There are for sure things that I just have to accept are going to be "different" in vegan form. Ice cream. Angel Food Cake....
