Spaghetti with Creamy Avocado




If you are like me, who can eat avocados with anything, then you should try this recipe.

My daughter saw me cut the avocados and said' yew, green!".

 Then I  played the roll of a sneaky chef and made my 6 year old eat avocado with out any complaints! Sh.....

There is no butter or cream and is a perfect dish for all you low carb eaters!

There is no recipe, honestly and I did not take pictures as I cooked the dish! My kids finished this and I ended eating the creamy avocado on a simple bread toast for dinner.

Get Ready ( serves 2 kids)


  • Avocado 1, pitted and remove the flesh.
  • Bunch of cilantro, washed and picked
  • salt to taste
  • 1 clove of garlic peeled
  • 1 small green chili / optional
  • Lemon juice to tatste
  • Spaghetti or any pasta cooked aldente, ( took 3 fistful of dry spaghetti)
  •  1 tsp of olive oil
  • 4-5 grape tomatoes halved ( optional)
Go

  • In a blender/ food processor add the avocado, chili, cilantro, garlic, salt and lemon juice. blend till creamy, set aside.
  • Cook the pasta aldente, drain and toss in some olive oil
  • Add the avocado mixture to the pasta and toss them well in a bowl
  • Add the cherry tomatoes and serve.
I added a little of store brought marinara sauce over this for my little one and she did not even know.

Other variations:


  • Use basil or spinach to grind with the avocado.
  • Add some streamed corn or any beans of your choice to the cooked pasta.


How easy is that for a week night dinner, folks?
