Avocado Pesto

Serves: one to two

Gluten-Free, Soy-Free, Oil-Free, Nut-Free, Vegan (of course!)

Pesto pasta has always been one of my favorite dishes; however, most pesto recipes include cheese, milk, and oil. Avocado to the rescue! This whole-food, plant-based avocado pesto is the perfect, creamy pesto to serve over pasta, potatoes, and even salad as a dressing!



  • One avocado
  • One to two cloves of minced garlic, depending on how garlicky you prefer your pesto
  • One tsp. of dried oregano
  • One tsp. of dried basil
  • The juice from one lemon
  • Salt and pepper to taste

How to make:

  1. In a small bowl, mash the avocado.
  2. Stir in the minced garlic, herbs, lemon juice, salt, and pepper.*
  3. Enjoy over my pasta primavera (pictured) or your favorite dish!

*If you would like your pesto to be thinner, you may blend all of the ingredients together.
