You know when you have an avocado that needs eating up but you aren’t going to get to it?
I have the solution!
This *Amazing* Avo Sauce not only lives up to its name from a flavour perspective, it’s also great for extending the shelf life of your precious avocados.
Definitely one to save to your favourites.
It brings a bright creamy goodness wherever it goes. I especially love it with fish and pork but it’s also excellent with eggs or beef or chicken or turkey or beans or…. you get the picture ?
Basically use it anywhere you’d normally use avocado to bring an explosion of freshness. It’s also a great, if somewhat unusual dairy-free substitute for pesto.
Amazing Avo Sauce
Total Time 15minutes
30gparsley, coriander (cilantro), mint OR basil (large bunch)
1smallavocado or 1/2 large
30gjalapenos from a jar optional
Metric - US Customary
Roughly chop the herbs to make it easier to blend.
Place avocado, lime juice, water, jalapenos (if using), herbs, oil and salt in a tall jug or glass jar. Just make sure the mouth is wide enough for your stick blender. Or pop in the bowl of your food processor.
Using your stick blender or processor, blitz until everything is combined and the herbs are finely chopped and flecked prettily through the sauce.
Taste and season with more salt, lime juice or oil if needed (it probably won't).
Variations & Substitutions Avo Sauce
family-friendly / no heat / nightshade-free – skip the jalapenos.
different vegetables – replace avocado with green olives or roast eggplant (aubergine) or grilled peppers. Also thinking roast beets would make an amazing beet sauce!
different herbs – use a mix of any of parsley, coriander (cilantro), mint, basil, oregano or tarragon.
no lime – use apple cider vinegar, other wine vinegar or lemon juice.
different heat / no jalapenos – use any fresh or dried chilli peppers instead of the jalapenos – just adjust quantity according to taste and be careful not to add too much. You could also use a splash of tabasco or other hot sauce.
garlicky – I like it better without but feel free to add a small clove of garlic for extra intensity.
Ways to Use Your Avo Sauce
Everywhere – you’d normally use fresh avocado or guacamole.
On tacos – like these Taco Tuesday Bowls or these Egg & Bacon Tacos.
With Any Protein – chicken, fish, beef, lamb, pork,
Waste Avoidance Strategy
green herbs – will keep in the fridge wrapped in a plastic bag for a few weeks. Can be frozen or make a parsley oil by packing the leaves into a clean jar and covering with extra virgin olive oil.
avocado – use for another meal. Don’t freeze.
lime – will keep in a plastic bag in the fridge for months.
jalapenos – unopened jars can be kept in the pantry. Once open will keep in the fridge for months.
olive oil / salt – keep them in the pantry.
Problem Solving Guide
bland – more salt, more lime or more jalapenos!
too dry – overcooked omelette. Next time get it out earlier. For now a drizzle of extra virgin olive oil will help.
no stick blender – use a food processor – or finely chop everything and mix together with a spoon for a chunky salsa.
too hot – add more oil to calm things down. Don’t add more lime as it will exacerbate the heat.
Prepare Ahead Avo Sauce
Yes! Just make as per the recipe. Leftovers will keep in the fridge for up to 1-2 weeks or can be frozen. Serve chilled or allow to come to room temperature.

For years, teletherapy has been pitched as the next frontier in mental-health care. Unlike medical disciplines requiring a more hands-on approach—say, physical therapy or surgery—talk therapy has long seemed a natural and effective fit for telehealth. And by taking appointments off the therapist’s couch and into patients’ homes via their devices, advocates argued, telehealth could make counseling more accessible and convenient for...

Around 100 times a second, every hour of every day, lightning strikes somewhere on Earth. It might strike over the ocean, far from where anyone might see it. It might hit the beach, perhaps forming a beautiful deposit of fulgurite. It might strike a tree, setting off a wildfire. And on rare occasions, it might hit a person, injuring or even killing them. In fact, some 24,000 people are killed each year by lightning. This is why you should seek cover any time there’s a thunderstorm in the area. Even if the storm doesn’t appear close, you might still get struck. See all the entries from our Let’s Learn About seriesLightning comes in many forms. There are the big bolts from cloud to the ground, of course, but also plenty that travel between clouds in the sky. There’s...

Astrology by WITCHTIPS This week brings the final intense pop of astrology in June. After this week, we can chill for a bit. The annual solar eclipse in Gemini occurs on June 10th, the same day Mercury retrograde links up with the Sun in Gemini. This will bring us clarity during the intensity of the eclipse. Action planet Mars enters fierce Leo on June 11th, making us fight for what we love. The Gemini Sun and Neptune, who’s in Pisces, square off on June 13th which will add confusion and delusion to our minds and emotions. Venus, who’s in Cancer, connects with Uranus, who’s in Taurus, on June 13th, bringing excitement to love and relationships. June...
After a month of thermal protection system foam repairs and other preparations, workers with NASA’s Exploration Ground Systems (EGS) and prime test operations and support contractor Jacobs at the Kennedy Space Center in Florida started lift operations on the Space Launch System (SLS) Core Stage for Artemis 1 in the Vehicle Assembly Building (VAB) on June 10. Early on June 11, two of the overhead cranes in the VAB rotated the Core Stage from horizontal to vertical in the Transfer Aisle.

AWOLNATION’s “Sail” was certified diamond by the Recording Industry Association of America on Monday (June 14). The alternative juggernaut has moved 10 million units in the 10 years after its release. According to the RIAA, one equivalent song unit is equal to a single digital song sale, or 150 on-demand audio and/or video streams. “I wrote this song with the intention of showing a few friends and my family. It’s a very raw and honest song, so I was kinda nervous to share,” AWOLNATION founder Aaron Bruno said in a press release. “I continue to be shocked and humbled that this many millions of people have related. Never in my wildest dreams would I have even imagined this gift.” “Sail”...
