RECIPE: AVOCADO GARLIC PASTA
It's been a cool minute since I've posted a recipe for you guys, but this is something that was NECESSARY for me to share! Avocado Garlic Pasta.... yes.. Avocado plus garlic? GENIUS combination!
I was so shocked to see how many benefits Avocado have! Makes sense, since AVOCADO IS LIFE.
Meal/Cook Time: 30 minutes
YOU WILL NEED:
- 1 Large Pot
- 1 Skillet
- A food processor/blender
- 2 ripe avocados
- Lemon Juice
- Minced Garlic
- Whole Wheat Noodles
- Olive Oil/Coconut Oil
- Sun dried Tomatoes
- 1/2 cup of Parsley
- Your choice of protein
STEP 1: Boil water in a large pot for the noodles. *Add a pinch of sea salt to add more absorbance for liquids
STEP 2: As the noodles are cooking, season the protein. In my case, I chose chicken. I only seasoned a bit because I didn't want to overpower the actual avocado sauce. I used a tad bit of pepper & Mrs. Dash's Garlic & Herb spice. Grill on skillet till cooked.
STEP 3: Slice your 2 ripe avocados in half and put in a food processor or blender.
- Add 1/2 a cup of olive oil
- 1 1/2 tablespoons of minced garlic (based on preference)
- 1 cup of lemon juice
- Add Sun dried tomatoes (based on preference)
- Add 1/2 cup of Parsley
Blend, blend & blend till smooth.
STEP 4: Strain your cooked noodles, add cold water to keep noodles from sticking & strain again. Add noodles back to pot.
STEP 5: Add the sauce to the pot of noodles. Our goal is to coat the sauce with the noodles, not necessarily drain it with the sauce!
STEP 6: Slice up lemons and add on top with the grilled chicken.
STEP 7: Enjoy!
Hope you guys like this dish as much as I do!
