Green Goddess

I’m really enjoying trying a lot of the 5 Ingredient Fix recipes.  They are so simple to do.  Of course, as with anything, you may see something on t.v. that looks amazing and then when you make it you are left disappointed.  It’s like a blind date with food.  He sounds really nice and your friend says he is really hot, but when you meet him for the first time you want to run for the door.  While my experience with one of  Claire Robinson recipes over the weekend called Green Goddess Rice was not THAT bad I WASN’T giving him my number. 

I didn’t have any basmati rice on hand so I used long grain rice.  I thought the Green Goddess sauce tasted amazing by itself, but I wasn’t a big fan once I mixed it with the rice.  It was like the guys body was smokin hot, but his face was not attractive.  The green sauce was fresh, creamy and had a strong pop from the basil.  I just think I would prefer the sauce over some chicken or mixed with vegetables next time.

Ingredients for the sauce:

1 haas avocado – pealed, pitted and chopped

1 package fresh basil leaves

3T extra virgin olive oil

kosher salt

1/4 c water

freshly ground black pepper

1 lemon juiced

Put avocado, basil, lemon juice, oil and water in a blender and puree. Season generously with salt and pepper.  Add more water if necessary (the sauce should be the consistency of sour cream).
