Ingredients

  • 2 ripe avocados
  • 2 cups of fresh green beans
  • 4 tablespoons of smooth peanut butter
  • Food processor

Instructions

  1. Start by preparing the green beans. Trim the ends and cut them into bite-sized pieces.
  2. Bring a pot of water to boil and blanch the green beans for about 3-4 minutes, until they are bright green and tender-crisp. Then, quickly transfer them to a bowl of ice water to stop the cooking process. Drain and set aside.
  3. Cut the avocados in half, remove the pits, and scoop out the flesh into the food processor.
  4. Add the blanched green beans and peanut butter to the food processor.
  5. Blend the mixture until smooth and creamy, scraping down the sides as needed to ensure everything is well combined.
  6. Season the creamy avocado and green bean mixture with salt and pepper to taste. You can also add a squeeze of lime juice for a hint of brightness.
  7. Serve the creamy avocado and green bean salad in individual bowls and garnish with additional green beans or avocado slices if desired.
