  1.

INGREDIENTS: Avocado puree -1 whole ripe avocado -1/4 cup almond milk -1/2 tsp Dijon mustard -3 tsp lime juice -Rock salt -4 drops balsamic fig -3 tsp Basil pesto -Affilla 1. Blend until thick and smooth. COMBINING: 1.Put a dollop of sour cream into the cous cous cups before putting the avocado puree on top. 2.Top with roasted bell peppers sautéed with onions, garlic & eggplant. Guaranteed irresistible! They also work as canapes too. Make sure you've made a lot to go around when you're serving these out to hungry guests!
