Ingredients

  • 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.

Optional

Instructions

  • 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 :)
