Avocado Sauce

So. I have a confession to make. I hate avocados. If you live in California like I do then you know that saying you hate avocados gets the same reaction from Californians as saying you straight up hate Cali. 

I mean, if you read my blog you know I hate bland food. Avocados are bland. Most guacamoles I've tried are bland. I find that the chunkier a guac is, the more bland. So I knew the only way I could eat avocado without gagging is with lots of flavor.

So I decided to make something flavorful with avocado. I wrangled these items (I don't know why I used the word 'wrangled'. I didn't wrangle anything to be honest.):

I used 3 avocados, a poblano pepper, 3 green onions, a bunch of cilantro, grated parmesan cheese, the juice of a lime and a little bit of olive oil. Plus good ol' S&P.

So first thing you wanna do is chop up the pepper and onions. Just rough chop them, but be gentle as well. ;)

Throw them into a blender or food processor. You don't have to throw them. You can just place them in the blender. I'm having a hard time accurately describing how to handle food today. 

Avocado time. Cut them in half and remove the seed in the middle.

Then scoop out the flesh and throw that into the blender also. I'm sticking with throw. 

Add the juice of a lime, parmesan cheese and oil. I eyeballed the amount but if I had to guess I would say about 1/4 cup of the parmesan and two drizzles of olive oil. 

Add water about halfway up the ingredients in the blender and blend it, blend it, blend it. 

You can enjoy this on tacos or nachos. Or like guacamole with tortilla chips. Or maybe with some pasta with a bit more parmesan on top. Or drink it straight up. Ok no. Don't do that. Ever. That shit is nasty. 

Enjoy!

 

RECIPE

Ingredients:

3 avocados
1 poblano pepper
3 green onions
1 bunch of cilantro
about 1/4 cup of grated parmesan cheese
drizzle of olive oil
juice of a lime
S&P to taste

Directions:

Roughly chop the pepper (deseeded) and the green onions and add to a blender/food processor.

Add the cilantro to the blender as well.

Cut the avocados in half, remove the seed and spoon the flesh into the blender too.

Add the lime juice and drizzle of olive oil.

Grate the cheese and add S&P to taste. Easy on the salt since the parmesan is salty itself.

Add enough water to allow the blender to puree the sauce.

Blend until smooth and taste for S&P. Adjust and enjoy on a taco, with chips or even on some pasta.
