Avocado – Arugula Pesto

Very simple and low-calorie recipe. If you leave out the feta cheese the pesto itself does not have any weight watchers points and if you combine it with whole grain pasta you’ll have a great 3 points meal that takes less than 10 min

What you need:

1 ripe Avocado
2 hand full Arugula
2 garlic cloves
1 red onion
2 tbs vinegar
1/4 c fresh basil
juice of 1 lemon
salt and pepper
sweetener or sugar
feta Cheese to taste (optional)

Place arugula, basil, vinegar, sweetener and lemon juice into a food processor. Add sliced onions, garlic,(cheese) and avocado. Process until smooth. If it’s too thick you may to add some water. Lastly salt to taste.
Be sure to use Feta cheese that is made out of ewe’s or goat’s milk and not cow’s milk. Of course it works with all kinds of cheese but I find that the ones out of cow’s milk tastes horribly salty, so it’s absolutely worth spending the few extra pennies on real feta

Makes 3 – 4 servings.
