Quick and Creamy Avocado Pasta
Quick and creamy Avocado Pasta that’s healthy and vegan. High in fiber, vitamin C, iron and good fats. Easy to make in under 15 minutes.
Servings 2 people
- 5 oz whole grain pasta
- 1 good handful cherry tomatoes
- ¼ cup basil, fresh (dry basil will do too, but use less)
- 1 large avocado
- 2-3 tbsp lemon juice
- 1-2 tbsp soy sauce
- 1 tbsp olive oil
- 1 clove garlic
- salt to taste
- Add a few tbsps of water, if too thick.
Bring water to boil and chuck in pasta.
Use pasta cooking time to prepare the avocado sauce:
Mash the avocado flesh with a fork in a bowl until its creamy (if you have a food processor, use that)
Add olive oil, lemon juice and soy sauce to the mashed avocado
Cut the basil leaves and add them to the bowl
Grate the garlic and ginger and add them too. Remember, ginger is optional. Unless you’re born that way
If the mix is too thick then add some tablespoons of water
Drain the pasta and place it back in the pot. Add the avocado sauce and stir nicely
Halve the cherry tomatoes and throw in with pasta
Sprinkle with sesame seeds if you have them to hand and season with a bit of salt.
Boom! Ready :)
