This low spoon recipe is really easy, but makes a delicious and creamy pasta dish. For this, all you will need is:
- 1 cup pasta (I used elbow macaroni)
- 1/2 avocado
- lemon or lime juice
- black pepper
- basil (I only had dried basil in our pantry so I just used that, but fresh would be even better)
- garlic powder
- onion powder
- optional: a boca chik’n patty or any other meat substitute
First, I boiled the pasta. While it was boiling I made the sauce by blending the avocado, a few drops of lime juice, and the spices. I also added about 1/4 of a cup to 1/2 cup of water to help it blend. It’s a low spoon meal so there aren’t any measurements, I just threw everything in the blender to taste.
After the sauce was blended I microwaved a Boca chik’n patty for 1 minute and 10 seconds and cut it into squares.
Finally, I drained the pasta, added the sauce to the pasta, and mixed in the chik’n. I sprinkled some red pepper flakes on top and that’s it! A creamy pasta dish that’s super easy to make.
Let me know if you try this out in the comments! Also, how do you feel about avocado with pasta? I thought it would be a weird combination at first, but it’s a great flavor combo, especially with the chik’n and red pepper flakes.
