Instructions

  • Combine all cream cheese ingredients in a blender and puree until smooth. Taste and add more salt and/or honey and/or lime or lemon juice to taste. Add to an airtight container and refrigerate at least 20 minutes.
  • Clean and dry blender, then add all chimichurri ingredients. Blend until mostly processed but a few pieces of herbs remain. Taste for more oil and/or vinegar and/or spices. Adding more oil and vinegar will also thin it out, if you prefer a thinner texture. Store in the fridge in an airtight container.
  • To assemble: Toast 2 pieces of bread (suggested serving, then top with a generous layer of avocado cream cheese, then fresh avocado slices, then a drizzle of chimichurri, then approximately 1/2 teaspoon honey and chopped pistachios, if using. Go LIGHT on the chimichurri to start--it is a strong flavor, albeit delicious! Avo cream cheese will keep tightly sealed for 4 days in the fridge, chimichurri 1 week. Also PS, the avo cream cheese makes for an awesome pasta sauce as well!
