If I’m completely honest my favourite way to eat avocado is just on toast. Why try and make it into something it isn’t?
I have my friend Caoimhe to thank for this idea, and it really does make a truly tasty pasta sauce. You’ll need some things to bring out the flavour – lots of basil, garlic and lemon, but it’s worth it.
Take a splash of the pasta water in a jug (you can always add more later) and an avocado lightly mashed with a fork. Stir in minced garlic, salt and pepper, a handful of fresh basil and a squeeze of lemon. Blitz with a hand held blender until you have a rough textured sauce – some lumps are fine.
