Vegan avocado, pinenuts and basil pesto
Since I love creamy flavors I have always been adding loads of cream to pasta sauces. But I figured out you can get similar consistency from avocado and -. This pesto is prepared in 5 minutes and it won’t disappoint.
For 3 people; Very simple; 5 minutes
70 g pine-nuts
2 ripe avoados
30 g fresh basil; roughly chopped
3 tablespoons of olive oil
Extra: 300 g pasta
- Cook the pasta as the instructions on the box say.
Meanwhile roast the pine-nuts in a pan. It will take around 3 minutes.
- In a smaller food processor (hand blender might also work) blend the pine-nuts. Then add avocado, basil, olive oil and solt. Blend well.
- Mix pesto in cooked and drained pasta.
