Creamy Avocado ‘Carbonara


Creamy Avocado ‘Carbonara
Write a review
  1. 1 medium sized ripe Avocado, pitted
  2. Juice and zest of half a lemon
  3. 2-3 garlic cloves, depending on your taste (I used 2 only)
  4. Pinch of salt (to taste)
  5. ¼ cup of fresh herbs (I used half basil and half parsley, I’d probably opt for all parsley next time)
  6. 2 T extra virgin olive oil
  7. 1/3 cup of walnuts, chopped and toasted
  8. Freshly ground pepper (to taste)
  9. Fresh parsley, to garnish
  10. Pasta, to serve (2-3 serves, around 80z?)
  1. Begin by cooking your pasta according to instructions.
  2. Meanwhile, make the sauce by place lemon juice (not the zest), garlic and olive oil in a food processor. Process until fairly smooth.
  3. Add in the remaining ingredients except for those used to garnish/decorate (ie everything except walnuts, pepper, parsley for garnish, pasta and zest). Process until very smooth and creamy.
  4. Toss the pasta in the sauce.
  5. To serve, garnish with fresh parsley, pepper, lemon zest and walnuts.
