Ingredients

  • 2 medium avocados
  • 1/4 cup chopped up basil
  • 1 tbsp tahini
  • 1 tbsp olive oil
  • 2 tbsp lemon juice
  • 1/2 tbsp whole grain dijon mustard use regular dijon mustard if you do not have whole grain

  • 3 tbsp water to thin out
  • 3 tbsp diced sun dried tomatoes

Instructions

  • In a blender or food processor, add all the ingredients together except the sun dried tomatoes. Puree until smooth.
  • If your mixture is too thick and is not pureeing properly add in mote water one tablespoon at a time.
  • I usually prepare this vegan avocado sauce while the pasta is boiling since it comes together so quickly.

Pasta

  • Boil the pasta according to the instructions on the package. When ready, drain the pasta and put it in a large bowl or back in the pot you cooked it in and add the pesto avocado sauce and the sun dried tomatoes. Gently toss the pasta to coat it with the vegan avocado sauce. and serve immediately :)
