Avocado Pasta and some exciting news!

Dear Readers,

Yesterday I cooked up a delicious avocado pasta dish which was super easy to make and 100% plant-based of course! I have made it before but I tweaked the recipe this time and was pleasantly surprised with the results.

Here is what you need…

Serves 1-2 PeopleIMG_1191.jpg

1 Avocado

1 Garlic clove

5 or 6 Basil Leaves (add to taste)

1 Tbsp Soya Yogurt

1/2 Lemon (juiced)

Seasoning

Organic wholegrain fusilli

Method:

Blend all the ingredients apart from the Pasta. Once the pasta is cooked, drain and stir in the avocado sauce to warm and then serve.

As for my exciting news, I have officially booked to begin travelling as of next Thursday (16th March)! I cant wait to post all about my journey which starts in Dubai, followed by southeast Asia. Then onto volunteering in Bali where I will spend my time teaching children about the environment after which I’m heading to Singapore and Malaysia 🙂

Hope you enjoy the recipe and keep your eye on this blog for updates on my adventures!

Here is what I chose to include;

2 Vegan Linda Mccartney sausages

1/2 Avocado

1/2 tin Baked Beans

Fried potatoes (use around 3-4 small potatoes per person, slice thinly, lay in a frying pan with small amount of oil and fry until turning crisp and golden brown)

1-2 Slices of toast with vegan butter

I would also include grilled cherry tomatoes or mushrooms but I didn’t have any when I made this dish last.

Who said vegan food is boring? 😀
