Avocado Spinach Pasta

I had some beautifully ripe avocados on hand, some Swiss chard sitting in the fridge from a week ago (but still fresh because I had the foresight to de-stem, clean and pack them into airtight bags!) and some limes. Obviously, the answer was creamy avocado spinach pasta!

  • Blender


  • 1 avocado large
  • 1 cup spinach or Swiss chard
  • 1 lime juiced
  • 1 clove garlic
  • 1 tbsp nutritional yeast
  • 2 tbsp olive oil
  • salt to taste
  • pepper to taste
  • pasta for 4


  • Bring a pot of water to boil and get the pasta cooking
  • In a blender, Nutribullet or food processor, place the avocado, spinach, lime juice, garlic, nutritional yeast and olive oil and pulse until blended. You might need to scrape it down a couple times.
  • Once the pasta is al dente, keep about 1/4 cup of the starchy cooking water aside, and add it to the avo mix. Blend until smooth, and add salt & pepper to taste.
  • Add the sauce to the pasta and mix to coat, and serve immediately :)
