Avo dill: A quick and easy plant-based sauce for your Vitamix
Here’s an easy sauce recipe for a quick and healthy dinner: Avocado dill!
Making the noodles (or Zoodles) to accompany it will take longer than making the sauce itself.
It’s creamy and decadent without the guilt of an actual cream-based sauce. We’re using fresh produce for a bright and vibrant flavor (and color).
Put some water on the stove. You’re going to want a “vehicle” for this avocado dill sauce ASAP.
This no-cook sauce is epically flavorful
Sometimes you want a fancy taste without all of the effort. Classic tomato sauces cook low and slow for hours before they reach their flavor potential.
This sauce? Takes minutes. And sometimes that’s all we have!
No pot, no pan, no heat, just blend. (Which makes it a perfect recipe for the summer.)
It’s also utilizing fresh ingredients that give this sauce a really bright and aromatic flavor. For using just a handful of ingredients, it’s got a really complex taste.
Give it a try! You won’t be disappointed.
Top with colorful things if you’re serving to guests. We sauteed some cherry tomatoes and added some pine nuts too. You could add sundried tomatoes, artichokes, spinach, really anything goes with this sauce.
Useful tips for Avocado Dill Sauce
This recipe was made in the 20 oz container. If you’re using a larger container, double or triple the batch. The ingredients need to cover the blade.
We love garlic, but this sauce only needs a little before it overpowers the flavor. Use one small clove (you can always add more later).
If you’re using fresh dill (which you should if you can), 2-4 sprigs should do it. Start with 2 and then add more per your personal preference. We really like dill around here, so we loaded up.
This sauce needs salt, don’t be shy. Wanna kick it up a notch? Use truffle salt… mmm.
Serve on traditional pasta or go the healthier route and serve with Zoodles! We tried it both ways and it’s equally as delicious.
