Avocado Pesto Crostinis
These are healthy and delicious! A healthful spin on traditional basil pesto by adding the nutrients and healthy fats and fiber found in avocado! And a twist on avocado toast by adding in the goodness of pesto! The best of both worlds. Serve on a gluten-free baguette, other bread or crackers.
Juice of 1 lime
1/2 cup pine nuts
10 large leaves basil
1 tablespoon chives chopped (or to taste)
2-3 cloves garlic
Salt & pepper to taste
1/3 cup olive oil
Gluten-Free Baguette, sour dough or other bread
Red pepper flakes (optional)
Drizzle of olive oil (optional)
Add all pesto ingredients except for olive oil to a food processor. Blend on high and slowly drizzle the olive oil in. Once all the oil is in, stop the machine and scrape down the sides. Blend further until the mixture is smooth and consistent.
Serve immediately (or chill for 30 minutes) on fresh bread or crackers. Sprinkle red pepper flakes and drizzle olive oil over top if desired.
