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!

Sweet Potato, Butter bean and Tomato pasta sauce

Dear Readers,

Yesterday I had very few ingredients in the house which actually ended up being to my advantage, as It resulted in the creation of this pasta sauce recipe! Again as usual it is so simple but delicious.
Here it is;

(serves 4)

-1tbs coconut oilIMG_5532.jpg

-1 Onion

-200ml water (add more if needed

-2 Cloves of Garlic

-1 large or 2 medium sweet potatoes, chopped

-2 tins of tomatoes

– 1 Tin of butter beans

– A coupe of handfuls of Spinach (however much you like)

-Spaghetti (enough for 4 people)

Method

In a large pan melt coconut oil, then add onion and cook till the onions begin to sweat. Add the garlic, stir till garlic is partially cooked. Then add chopped sweet potatoes and water, put a lid on and leave to simmer for around 20 minutes. Once the potato looks like its starting to soften add the tomatoes and beans.

Meanwhile in another pan boil water in preparation for spaghetti, once its reached boiling point add a sprinkling of salt and the pasta. This should take 8-10 minutes to cook

Stir, replace lid and leave to cook for another 10minutes. Once the potato looks fully cooked add the spinach and leave until spinach has cooked.

Top the pasta with the sauce and you’re done, enjoy 🙂

Heres to a better future, until next time, Charlotte xxxx
