Get the Recipe: Vegan Avocado Pasta

This vegan avocado pasta is great for a lunch or dinner that's ready in just 15 minutes. Creamy, rich and tangy, this meal is entirely dairy-free and easy to make. Gluten-free as long as you use gluten-free pasta.


  • 10 oz pasta, of your choice (gluten-free if necessary)
  • 3 large avocados
  • 1 cup cilantro
  • 1 shallot, diced
  • 2 cloves garlic
  • 2 tsp maple syrup
  • 1/4 cup vegan cream cheese
  • 1/2 tsp salt, or to taste
  • 1/2 tsp cumin
  • 1 lemon, juice of


  • Cook the pasta until al dente. Drain when done, but don't rinse.
  • Make the sauce by adding the avocado, cilantro, shallots, garlic, maple syrup, vegan cream cheese, salt, cumin and lemon juice to a blender or food processor. Blend until very smooth.
  • In a bowl or pan, add the sauce to the pasta and mix together well. Serve the avocado pasta immediately, or leave to chill in the fridge for around 20 minutes to serve cold.



As avocado tends to oxidise quite quickly, this dish is best eaten immediately. However, you can store it in the fridge in an airtight container for around a day.
