This is another recipe that I found in the cookbook that came with my Vitamix. It's super easy to put together, and turned out really well! We seasoned it up with salt and a good amount of pepper at the end, and it made it even better. This is a great low-maintenance recipe that will definitely be a repeat for busy weeknights. I also think I can add a few things to it to make it taste even better, but this is a great start. I served it with the remaining Avocado Egg Rolls with Chipotle Ranch Dipping Sauce. Yum!
