Avocado Basil Pasta

Serves: 3-4


  • 250g dried spaghetti noodles
  • 3 cups cherry tomatoes
  • 2 large ripe avocados
  • 1 cup fresh, packed basil leaves
  • 2 medium garlic cloves
  • the juice of half a lime
  • salt and pepper, to taste
  • vegan parmesan



  1. In a large pot, boil pasta according to package directions.
  2. Line a baking sheet with parchment paper. Cut the cherry tomatoes in half and place them on the sheet, skin facing up. Broil in the oven on the lowest broil setting until the tomatoes become blistered. This may take anywhere between 5-15 minutes, depending on your oven. Watch them closely and don’t place the rack too close to the top burner, so that they don’t burn.
  3. While the pasta and tomatoes are cooking, make your sauce. Blend the avocados, basil, garlic, lime juice, salt, and pepper in a blender until smooth. Adjust seasonings to taste.
  4. Drain the pasta. Pour the sauce and tomatoes on the pasta and toss to coat the noodles.
  5. Plate the pasta and garnish with homemade or store bought vegan parmesan, Enjoy!

    This looks delicious. I’m not the biggest fan of avocado but it sounds like it would be so tasty with basil, I’ll have to try it out.


    1. Thanks! Yes as long as you add enough Basil it will take over the avocado flavour. You can add a little bit of olive oil too if you like πŸ™‚


  2. Great recipe! I love it! Thanks!
