    Avocado Awesome Sauce

    I know what you’re thinking, “Taneasha, that doesn’t look very awesome.”  And you’re right, it’s not very pretty, but what it lacks in beauty it more than makes up for in taste.  Think hollandaise sauce, only better, and if that wasn’t good enough… it’s healthy!  Woot woot!  Oh, and did I mention it’s ridiculously easy to make? 

    Here’s what you’ll need: 

    • 1 avocado
    • 2 teaspoons fresh squeezed lime juice
    • ½ teaspoon salt
    • ¼ teaspoon pepper
    • ¾ cup hot water 

    Step 1.  Juice your lime. 

    Step 2.  Cut your avocado in half.  (Mine wasn’t the prettiest avocado ever, but it still tasted amazing, so whatevs.)

    Step 3.  Carefully cut the avocado into cubes while it’s in the skin.

    Step 4.  Place all of the ingredients into your blender.  Turn it on, starting with the lowest speed, slowly increasing it until you have a nice smooth sauce.  If it’s too thick, add more hot water, 1 Tablespoon at a time. 

    Now just pour it over whatever you want to have it on.  I had mine in place of hollandaise for eggs benedict.  With a whole wheat English muffin and this sauce, you now have amazingly delicious eggs benedict that is actually good for you.  I bet you didn't think that was possible. 

    Don’t limit yourself to breakfast, though.  It would be fabulous to use for a base for chicken salad, as a spread for a sandwich, or in tacos.  The sky’s the limit, really.  This sauce is so good, you might just want to eat it with a spoon. 

    What is your favorite thing to do with avocado?

    Funny. Munchkin had sliced avocados with her lunch today, and we have a few avocados on the counter. I guess I will just have to use them.
