This vegan/raw “cream” sauce is super easy to make, ridiculously fresh tasting and will be your best friend if you are a big fan of avocados and lemon. This is one of those recipes that I can see people being very divided over. If you like the simple ingredients listed I guarantee this will become a go to recipe. If you aren’t crazy about avocados you might want to stay away. It tastes like a light and lemony creamy pasta without the dairy. Since it is basically just avocado you will have to eat it up right away, I can only imagine it will be an ugly colored mess the next day.
You will need:
- one ripe avocado
- juice of approximately half a lemon
- handful of fresh basil (other herbs should work)
- 2 cloves of garlic
- 1-2 TBSP olive oil
- salt and pepper to taste
Combine it all in a blender (I used my magic bullet) and served it on your favorite gluten-free pasta. I served mine on my go to gluten-free fettuccine. It’s almost too easy!
This recipe feeds two. Or one, if you are like me and eat the remainder on gf toast immediately.
