A Life-Changing Vegan Lunch
April 20, 2011 § 42 Comments
There has been a slight change of plans in my posting schedule this week. Originally I was planning on posting the recipe for my homemade Spinach Artichoke Hummus today, but yesterday I ate something that was truly amazing and I wanted to share it with all of you. It is life-changing!
Yesterday started out as any average day would. I woke up, showered, had breakfast, tried to clean my room. Again. Around noon my stomach started to grumble. My body was indicating that it was, indeed, lunch time. Instead of just whipping up an old-standby I was feeling rather adventurous so I turned to Blog World for help. After a quick scroll through the bookmarked “Recipes” tab on my computer I knew exactly what I wanted to make.
Doesn’t that just scream Springtime to you?
Avocado. Lemon. Garlic. Basil. Pasta. This is what dreams are made of.
Although it looks rather fancy and intimidating, this dish was easy to prepare and can be done in a snap! I guess that’s why they call it 15 Minute Creamy Avocado Pasta. It only takes 15 minutes to make, if not less!
Ease of preparation isn’t the best part of this recipe though. Oh no. It is most definitely the taste and texture. Just look at that vegan ‘cream’ sauce. It was so creamy and delicious. Who needs alfredo?!
Since the recipe states it makes 2 servings I figured I would be a nice sister and share some with my 10-year old brother, Phil. You’d think a kid his age would hate something like this. Nope. Phil loved it and so did I! Each ingredient provided a unique flavor and they all came together in perfect harmony. I garnished the top of the pasta with lemon zest and the citrus-y flavor was phenomenal against the mild taste of the avocado. Once I had eaten my the last bite I knew that I would be making this dish again soon.
That being said, if you ever find yourself trying to impress someone with a healthy vegan dish, this 15 Minute Creamy Avocado Pasta is the dish for you!
I liked it so much that I got Phil to take a picture of me with it on the front lawn. I’m sure the people walking by loved seeing that.
