I have a go-to green sauce that I put on everything. Yes, I’ve been holding out on you. I put it on chickpea pasta. I put it on salads. I dip things in it. It’s one of those put-it-on-everything, cannot get enough, eat it with a spoon kind of sauces. You know what I’m saying?
The other day I posted this beet falafel bowl on my Instagram and I had a bunch of y’all tell me you needed the sauce recipe. So here we go! The best green sauce on the plant. Oh, and it’s pretty easy.
Scroll down to grab the recipe but if you want to learn about my new plant hobby, continue reading.
My whole life I’ve been pretty terrible at taking care of plants. I love flowers and plants and adore having them around me. Buuut, when it comes time to actually caring for said plants, I kill them immediately. I don’t want to kill them, I think I almost care too much about them, you know?
Anyway, it all started when my fiddle leaf fig almost died and then it, in fact, didn’t die but rather leveled off and then started growing new baby leaves. In my desperation to save my fiddle leaf, I researched and played around with it and then something clicked. I realized that if I care for plants how they’re actually supposed to be cared for… they seem to do ok. Imagine that!
Then my confidence grew way too high and I bought a bunch more plants that are scattered throughout my home. And, I’m obsessed with them.
But thennn… I took this little hobby one step further and I started propagating the leaves. Yes, I have removed leaves and am attempting to grow new plants from them. None have been successful so far. I kinda love taking care of the plants and feel like a crazy plant person, but I’m not even mad about it. I like it. This is who I am now.
Anyway, I find it relaxing and really love having plants around, so there you have it. My latest hobby update.
So here’s what you do: Place all the ingredients into your food processor: the avocado, cilantro, avocado oil, garlic, yogurt, lime juice, and sea salt.
Process until it’s nice and combined, about 10 seconds. Use a rubber spatula to scrape down the sides and process again until it’s combined. Immediately serve or transfer to an airtight container and store in your fridge.
