  • Peel and mince the garlic clove. Cut the avocado in half and scoop out of its shell.
  • Place all of the ingredients, except the olive oil, in the food processor and pulse for 30 seconds. Slowly add the extra virgin olive oilin a slow stream. This will emulsify the pesto and make it more creamy and thick.
