Avocado Pesto

I meant to add nutritional yeast flakes too, but forgot about it. It was late. :/ You can use this as a spread, a dip, a pasta sauce (probably best not to reheat it though)…the possibilities are endless! :D I didn’t have pine nuts (they’re morbidly expensive), so I subbed with cashews instead.

Avocado Pesto

-2 avocados, peeled with seed removed
-handful of basil leaves
-2 handfuls of cashews
-garlic powder, to taste
-black pepper, to taste
-splash of lemon juice

1) Combine everything into a food processor and blend until smooth.
