Since a recent avocado drought hit this neck of the woods, I had to improvise something to give me my daily avocado fix.
Bring on the mushrooms and pesto.
Not the most obvious choice, perhaps, but needs must, and choices were limited.
On the plus side, it's kind of gloopy and green like avocado, and has the delicious taste of pesto. On the minus side, it a) doesn't taste at all like avocado and b) the satisfaction in the preparation process is just not the same.
Anyway, the good news is the drought does appear to me over, and so normal avocado service will be resumed shortly.
