vegan lunch idea: creamy avocado garlic pasta


Sometimes I run out of ideas for lunch, and I get tired of the same old thing all the time, so I decided to get creative with the ingredients I had on hand. This recipe turned out to be super simple and delicious! 

8 oz dry pasta (I used quinoa/rice fusili)
1 avocado
2 cloves garlic, unpeeled
Handful baby carrots
Handful kale leaves
1/3 cup olive oil or more, depending on what consistency you want
Sea salt and pepper to taste

Bring pasta water to boil, add pasta and unpeeled garlic cloves. Cook pasta according to package directions. Meanwhile, peel and chop your avocado, and wash your other veggies. When pasta is done, drain it and remove garlic cloves. Add the avocado, kale, carrots, cooked garlic, olive oil and salt and pepper to your blender or food processor. Blend until smooth and toss with pasta immediately. Enjoy!
