Today: What do you do when an avocado has just about passed its prime? KatieQ turns a browning avocado into pesto.
The moment when you eagerly cut open an avocado, only to find that it's started to turn brown, can be tragic. But KatieQ has a solution: With the help of her friend, Clare, the two blend avocado with basil, olive oil, and lemon to make a pesto like you've never seen it. Mix it with the noodle of your choice, top with cheese, and you've got yourself a delicious meal. You'll never let another avocado go to waste again.
