Creamy Avocado Pasta Salad
This avocado pasta food trend has gone viral on TikTok and here’s how you can make it...
12 ounces rotini pasta or other short cut pasta
1 ripe avocado peeled, stone and chopped
1 cup cherry tomatoes halved
1 cup frozen corn thawed
Fresh basil for serving
2 ripe avocados peeled and cored
1 cup baby spinach
1/2 cup almond milk
Juice of 1 lemon
1 garlic clove
Salt and pepper to taste
1 tablespoon extra-virgin olive oil
In a large pot of boiling salted water, cook pasta according to package instructions but reduce cooking time by 2 minutes so pasta is al dente; drain well. You can thaw the frozen corn in the pasta cooking water in the last 3-4 minutes of cooking time.
To make the avocado dressing, combine the avocados, spinach, almond milk, olive oil, lemon juice and garlic in a blender or food processor. Season with salt and pepper. With the motor running, add olive oil slowly until the dressing is emulsified, smooth and creamy.
In a large bowl, toss the pasta with the dressing, tomatoes, corn and avocados. Garnish with fresh basil and serve immediately.
