Ingredients

  • 2 cups cooked thin/regular spaghetti (6 oz. dry)
  • 2 medium ripe avocadoes
  • 1/2 cup unsweetened coconut milk
  • 1/4 cup fresh basil leaves
  • 2 tbsp nutritional yeast
  • 2 garlic cloves
  • 2 tsp lemon zest
  • 3 tbsp lemon juice
  • salt to taste
  • freshly ground black pepper
  • 1/4 cup reserved pasta water

garnishing ( optional)

Instructions

  • In a large pot boil enough water to cook spaghetti as per the package instructions. When it’s almost cooked reserve ¼cup of its water before draining.
  • In the meanwhile, combine avocadoes, coconut milk, nutritional yeast, garlic, basil, lemon zest, lemon juice, salt and pepper in the blender and blend it smooth and creamy.
  • As soon as the pasta is boiled drain it and immediately toss it in the sauce.
  • Add the reserved pasta water to it and mix everything very well.
  • Slightly warm it on the stove top and adjust salt and pepper and lemon juice as per taste. Do not cook just warm it at this point.
  • Garnish and serve immediately.

Notes

  • This taste best if the sauce can be blended while the pasta is cooking. As soon as the pasta is cooked drain and mix without delay. However, if it starts to getting to room temperature just warm it up on the stove for 2-3 minutes. Do not cook at this point.
  • This tastes best when served immediately but the leftovers can be refrigerated in an air tight container to be used the next day. Warm it in the microwave before serving.
  • I prefer using tetra pack coconut milk from SO or SILK but you may use any of your choice. If you use canned coconut milk the nutritional value will vary.
