Welcome! I am so happy you chose to gather around my table. My name is Mia Swinehart and I am a registered dietitian with a passion for simple healthy recipes, women's hormonal health, and overall wellness!
Easiest creamy vegan avocado pasta. Super green and packed with nutrients. One of those recipes I make almost weekly but never wrote down an actual recipe for; I’m finally sharing the deets with you all!
This is such a good staple recipe to have on hand for days you don’t feel like cooking much, but want something nourishing and delish.
Even picky eaters will love this one! It has a delicious lemony flavor, and if you add fresh basil it tastes like a creamy pesto pasta! I make this often with and without basil, though, as it’s so tasty either way!
The nutritional yeast lends a sort of “cheesy”, savory flavor. You can skip it by using parmesan if you don’t need this to be vegan!
Don’t forget to season your pasta water well with sea salt, as you’ll be using some of it to thin out the sauce. Otherwise, it will make the sauce taste a bit bland.
I love to pair this with a chickpea or lentil pasta for a protein boost, and any veggies I have on hand. Think broccoli, zucchini, asparagus, kale, etc. It’s super versatile and so good every time!
