Whenever I recommend avocado to new parents, most of them either dislike it or have no idea how to go about eating it. Hmmm….does this explain why avocado is one of the least popular fruits among Asian kids? Maybe, but I am still pondering about it.
I don’t have many recipes for avocado. However, from time to time, I would come out with some adventurous way of enjoying it. On one occasion, I taught my son on how to dip avocado wedges into mayonnaise and toasted sesame. It’s so delicious that both of us couldn’t stop eating it, and finishing two avocados in split seconds!
Coming back to this creamy avocado pasta, it’s an ingenious creation of Oh She Glow which I can (not only me, but also my hubby and son too!) go on eating it again and again!! I’m truly amazed at how avocado can be used to create such a creamy and thick sauce for pasta. It’s really a good substitution for cream and also a perfect choice for vegan or those who are allergy to dairy product. Furthermore, the light garlic flavour and a tinge of lemon make the sauce even more delightful to the palate.
This avocado sauce is the fastest sauce I have ever made for pasta. It takes only 5 minutes to whip up the sauce, and no cooking is required. Besides pasta, you can top up extra ingredients to compliment this pasta dish such as are chicken, shrimp, salmon, bacon, ham, sausages, broccoli, snap peas, toasted pine nuts and grated parmesan cheese to this dish. The idea is almost endless depending on your personal preference! One thing to note, this dish needs to be served immediately as the avocado sauce used doesn’t re-heat well. If you’re pressed for time but want a nutritious meal for the family, this pasta dish is definitely worth a try!
