“creamy” avocado “pasta”

20120719-192831.jpg

I use the words “creamy” and “pasta” loosely here because I can not lie to you, there is no cream and it’s not actually pasta but it’s damn tasty and contains a whole bunch of servings of veg that you wouldn’t be getting if you actually just made pasta with creamy sauce…you see? So make this instead, you won’t be sorry.

“pasta”

1 large sweet potato spiral sliced
3 small zucchinis spiral sliced
1 red capsicum sliced in thin strips
1 green onion chopped finely

(if you don’t have a spiral slicer you should think about getting one, they make beautiful tasty spaghetti like pasta. Obviously you could sub with actual pasta if you want, or just use a peeler to peel long strips of veg)

“creamy” avo sauce

1 1/2 Avos
2 TBS avocado oil (or olive)
3 garlic minced
1/2 lemon and 1/2 lime juiced (or just one or the other)
3 TBS nutritional yeast
1/8 cup cashews
Paprika, sea salt, water to thin

Blend until smooth and “creamy”. Add to prepared pasta and combine. It helps soften the vegetable noodles if you get in there and massage the sauce into the noodles, This is optional as it’s kinda unpleasant (I made Ali do it).

“enjoy” 😉
