Avocado Mint Sauce

Avocado Mint Sauce

I was a strange hybrid of inspired and ferociously hungry when I returned from the farmer’s market today, which is a sentiment that occupies nearly 70% of my existence. I think a similar percentage of this dish was derived from either my garden or the farmer’s market, e.g. zucchini, fresh spinach, fresh mint, and tomatoes. Only ingredients added were protein sources (pasta/edamame), oil, and dried spices. No puns, no commentary. That much local is just awesome.
