Oh Summer! finally here… time for freshness, swimming, sun bathing and fun! also time for the kids to be off school (oh dear!) So ill be working on a few family friendly recipes for summer days starting with this one.
I love avocado, but some people consider it too bland. Regardless we have discussed before why Avocado is the King of vegetables. If you are one of those not convinced yet I think you should give this recipe a try before you quit on avocado.
Avocado Lime and Coriander Pesto sauce for your pasta. You can use whole grain pasta or for an extra kick of vegetables I recommend a Vegetable based pasta. Yes veggie pasta! vegetables in disguised for those who aren’t too fond of them. We absolutely love vegetables so no need to disguised but its nice to have a healthy pasta alternative.
Recipe for two portions. You need:
1 handful of cilantro (and a few extra why not! be generous)
1/4 of an onion
2 table spoons of virgin olive oil
1/4 cup of water
salt and pepper and garlic powder to taste
1 small tomato
2 limes (juiced)
You simply add everything on a high speed blender or food processor and mix until a smooth paste. And thats it! sauce is done, no cooking required.
Make your pasta according to package instructions. Drain. Mix with sauce. Serve with an extra portion of tomatoes and cilantro on top if desired. Super fresh, easy, creamy and healthy way to enjoy pasta this summer.
