I’m going on a journey this weekend. A journey to see familiar faces in a faraway place. A journey to see two lovers smooch it up in front of others, and then probably get drunk. Yaaay.
And because it will be quite a journey– about seven to eight hours long– I’m bringin’ schnacks. Yes, schnacks, indeed.
Here’s how you can make one of the schnacks that me, my best friend, and my boyfriend will be enjoying along our journey.
half a lemon; half an avocado;
and a handful of fresh basil leaves.
Then we’re gonna get a little fancy with the basil:
Then slice your little basil burrito thinly.
Anywho, throw everything into the food processor. Except the lemon… just squeeze the juice from it. Duh, right? Start blending. Add a little water to smooth out the consistency. If you like, you can drizzle a little tahini (aka sesame paste), like I did. Or olive oil. Or both. Whatever.
Salt and pepper too, of course. I thought about adding other spices, but really, this stuff doesn’t need anything else. It’s like you can feel the love the four main ingredients have for each other. Mmmm.
Good for dipping raw veggies, pita, crackers, fingers, toes, etc.
See you next week!
