Quick and Creamy Avocado Pasta is ready | hurrythefoodup.com

Cream. Delightful and delicious, playful yet palatable. And a great way to grow those hips or man tits! We recently amazed the world with our audacious claim that pancakes could be made using only bananas and eggs as the ingredients (Banana-Egg-Pancakes), and we were happily proven right. So here we are again, claiming a creamy sauce can be made without cream. WTF?

Yep, leave those cows alone and pick up an avocado instead. When mashed up, avocado flesh takes on a lovely creamy texture, and mixed with the combination of lemon, salt and pepper it makes a simple but unique flavour.

Throw in some cherry tomatoes and soy sauce to add a little tang and you’ve got one hell of a satisfying meal. Look at the picture above and tell me that doesn’t look awesome.

Health Benefits – Creamy Avocado Pasta

Fat is bad. Right? Wrong? The debate has been raging for a long while now, but the answer is really quite simple. In a fatty nutshell: saturated fat = not so good, unsaturated fat = good. This mouth-watering dish bears this in mind, with only 3g of it being ‘not so good’ fat. The other 17g is ‘good’ fat, needed as part of a balanced diet. Check it out here (Fatty Fat Fats).

If you’ve read some of our other recipes you’ll see how much we love to bang on about fiber. Fiber is absolutely ESSENTIAL to a good diet, and most people aren’t getting enough of it. Fiber helps to cut down the risk of heart disease, diabetes, strokes and numerous other evils (Fabulous Fiber), and one serving of this dish contains 66% of your GDA.

Combine that with 50% of your recommended vitamin C dose and 36% of iron and only one question remains: why the hell aren’t you face down in a bowl right now??

We’d also like to point out that this dish is fully vegan, and no animals were harmed during the making of it. Win win.
