Creamy Avocado Gluten-free Pasta


Serves 2


200g gluten-free pasta or courgetti

350g Nush Natural Almond Yog

1 large ripe avocado, pitted and sliced

2 cloves garlic crushed

1 tbsp olive oil

Two large handfuls of fresh basil

3.5 tbsp of Parmigiano Reggiano or nutritional yeast, grated

Juice ½ lemon

Pinch of chilli flakes (optional)

50ml pasta cooking water

Salt and pepper, to season

Roasted cherry tomatoes



Cook the pasta according to packet instructions.

Drain, reserving the starchy pasta water for later use, then set aside.

As the pasta is cooking, blend together all the ingredients for the sauce apart from the pasta water until smooth.

Once the pasta is cooked, add a spoonful of the pasta water into the sauce until you reach your desired consistency.

Taste and season your source, then stir into the cooked pasta along with the roasted cherry tomatoes. Sprinkle over Parmigiano Reggiano or nutritional yeast (to make it vegan) and serve.
