    Sometimes, if I feel lazy, I eat this simple avocado pesto several times a week.

     

    It’s literally only three ingredients:

    • 1 avocado
    • lemon or lime juice
    • garlic

    The other ingredients are optional but highly recommended. For me, Italian herbs are a MUST in every pasta dish.

     

    I’m such a herb lover, I usually eat about 1-2 Tbs in one meal.

    Sea salt is also optional but recommended. Every now and then I do salt-free meals if I feel a little bloated (reducing salt really helps!) but usually I add salt to regulate my low blood pressure.

     

    Okay, and because salt does make every dish so much tastier.

     

    Sometimes, if I feel REALLY lazy, I eat my pasta with only mashed avocado and a little sea salt.

     

    Avocadoes are magic.

     

    And you must be thinking I am crazy about pasta because most of the savoury recipes on my blog are pasta dishes.

     

    To be honest, I never realized I loved pasta so much until I started this blog.

     

    Whatever.

     

    Pasta is life.

     

    Let’s get to the recipe.

    Steps

    1
    Done

    Add all ingredients to a food processor and process them into a smooth avocado cream. Optionally, you can mash the avocado with a fork and use 1 tsp garlic powder (that's the lazy option).

    2
    Done

    Cook pasta according to package instructions.

    3
    Done

    Drain the pasta, throw it back into the pot and combine with avocado pesto.

    4
    Done

    Serve in a bowl together with rocket salad, fresh tomatoes and basil. Steamed peas and dried tomatoes also go very well with this dish. Make sure to try this combo!
