I have fallen in love with a creamy, flavorful pasta sauce that could not be easier to make. It’s as simple as whirling a couple of ripe avocados, fresh herbs, and a drizzle of oil in a blender while your favourite pasta cooks. The avocado makes for an incredibly creamy mild base, while a generous amount of garlic and basil work together to give the sauce a punch of flavour similar to pesto, but without any cheese or nuts.
2 avocados, pitted and diced
1 clove garlic, minced
Juice of 1/2 lemon
1/4 cup unsweetened soy milk
1/4 cup water
Salt, to taste
Red pepper flakes, to taste
4 halved cherry tomatoes as garnish (optional)
2 cups cooked pasta
Combine the avocados, garlic, and lemon juice in a food processor. As the mixture is blending, add the soy milk and then the water. Add more or less water depending on your desired consistency.
Add salt and red pepper, to taste.
Toss with your favourite cooked pasta and serve.
