Avocado Alfredo

Sooooo, I realize this photo probably does not look very yummy to some...but to us, on our plant-based diet, it looks creamy and delicious!! I used this recipe as a guide, with a few changes as outlined below.

I blended the following in my personal blender:
1 avocado
1 ts minced garlic
1/2 ts dried basil
1/2 ts dried oregano
juice of 1/2 lemon
salt and pepper to taste
Trader Joe's Everyday Seasoning to taste
almond milk 
{I kept adding until the consistency was what I wanted, 
so I've no idea how much I ended up using!}

I served the sauce over whole grain penne pasta only because that's what I had on hand.
And we also added some homemade salsa just for some extra zip and zing.
{told you we put it on everything!!} 
I do wish that I'd had some olives to add. But there's always next time, since I'll for sure be making this again!

    1. Thanks!! It really was delicious!! And if your diet allows, Parmesan cheese is a great addition to the ingredients!

  2. I love your blog. I am a new mommy of almost 7 month old twins. I have been trying to find other mommies of twins out here, Thanks for having such a lovely blog. I am not following you :) Stop by if you want to and say hi.

    Just followed you on Google Friend Connect. Hope I get a follow back. Thank you! :)


  4. After reading and pinning, I made this for lunch. We LOVED it! I used mostly water, a splash of milk and a little olive oil. I also happened to have a little homemade salsa left and man, it was awesome!

    1. Oh good! I'm glad y'all liked it!!! It definitely tastes better than it looks! :)
