Silky Avocado Sauce
- 1 avocado, halved and pitted, flesh cut in quarters
- 2 cups water
- 1 clove garlic
- 1/2 shallot
- 2 tablespoons lemon juice, plus more to taste
- Pinch kosher salt, plus more for seasoning
- Pinch freshly ground black pepper, plus more for seasoning
Add all the ingredients to a blender. Put the blender on a low setting and gradually increase the speed. Blend on high for about 20 seconds. Taste the sauce and adjust the flavor by adding more seasoning or lemon juice. Pour the sauce through a strainer into a small bowl. Cover and refrigerate until ready to serve. If you want a warm sauce, gently heat it in a small saucepan over low heat.
Cook's Note: The sauce can also be served as a uniquely delicious soup!
