Directions

  1. Bring a large pot of water to a boil. Julienne the bell peppers, so they are a noodle-like thinness, set aside.
  2. In a food processor add spinach, garlic, olive oil, lemon juice, and avocado, and season with salt and pepper. Pulse till the sauce is smooth. Pour into a large bowl
  3. Once the water is boiling, add the sliced peppers and cook for about 2 minutes or until the pepper starts to soften.
  4. Drain the peppers, reserving about 1 cup of the cooking water. Stir the water into the sauce to thin it. Toss the avocado sauce with the peppers. Season with salt and pepper and serve.
