Wild Dandelion Avocado Pesto

I went for a walk in the hills, and the wild forest dandelions were calling to me! So, I filled my backpack with bright green leaves. How to eat them?

An hour later I was spreading this yummy pesto on crisp, organic rye crackers. Often considered a noxious weed, fresh dandelion greens are filled with healthy phyto-chemicals. In folk medicine, the ...

Avocado Pesto

High nutrition and super-quick, whipped avocado is one of my top favorite snacks. For this 5-minute blended treat, you don't even need a recipe. An avocado dip that tastes yummy on everything, use it as a sauce for pasta or pita, sandwich spread, garnish for veggies, mayo substitute, topping for veggies, meats, or garnish for your eggs. Super-easy with a food processor, you can also make it in any blender, or mash it by hand. Makes 1 cup spread. Enjoy! [amd-zlrecipe-recipe:226]
