It’s avocado season! That means that the trees my parents have are loaded down with these highly popular fruits. I’m truly grateful that they’ve had trees since I was very little, no matter the house! My eyes may have been bigger than my fridge the last time I brought some back to Vegas, so I’ll have a few avocado recipes coming your way. There are worse things in life, right? 😉

First, I wanted to create a recipe that was savory, but wasn’t guacamole. Nothing against guac, it’s just been done a million times; though I do love my Roasted Veggie Guacamole recipe. This avocado tahini pasta came to mind when I needed to feed myself, late one night. Hmm.. It needed to be quick, fairly healthy, and use up some of these avocados! A few minutes later, I had the first version of this dish.

While I enjoyed this most at just cooler than room temperature, you can also leave it in the refrigerator to chill until serving. I wouldn’t recommend eating it warm, but that’s mostly because warm avocado is a little weird to me. Aside from eating this as a meal, you could easily serve it as a side at a barbecue or party.

Next up, I’m thinking avocado raspberry popsicles! If there’s anything else you’d like to see done with avocados, let me know in the comments. <3

Ingredients

  • 2 1/2 cups dried gluten-free pasta
  • water for pasta
  • 1 cup mashed avocado
  • 1/4 cup smooth tahini
  • 1/4 cup water
  • 1/4 cup lemon juice
  • 1/2 teaspoon dried parsley
  • 1/4-1/2 teaspoon salt
  • 1/4 teaspoon agave nectar
  • 1/4 teaspoon black pepper
  • 1 1/2 cups loosely packed arugula
  • 1 cup diced tomatoes
  • 1 tablespoon capers OPTIONAL
  • 1/2 teaspoon black sesame seeds garnish
  • 1/2 cup sprouts or micro greens OPTIONAL garnish

Instructions

  1. Prepare pasta according to package instructions, once cooked, drain and rinse with cool water. Keep in pot or transfer to a mixing bowl and top with a few ice cubes to speed up the cooling process. While cooling, make sauce.

  2. In a mixing bowl, whisk together avocado, tahini, water, lemon juice, parsley, salt, agave, and pepper, until smooth. You can also do this in a food processor, if you have one. Taste and add salt if needed.

  3. Drain any excess liquid from pasta and fold in avocado-tahini sauce. Next, fold in arugula, tomatoes, and optional capers. Either refrigerate until cooler or chilled, or serve and top each serving with sesame seeds and sprouts. Enjoy! Will last up to 4 days in refrigerator.

  6. OMG. put these in my mouth. I only just recently had my first avocado then and now I’m obsessed. Thanks for making the best comfort food vegan! You are my favorite food blogger 😉

    • So easy to be obsessed with avocados! And that means so much, thank you, Dave!

  7. I love this recipe! Avocado and tahini are a gorgeous combination. On my list of things to make.

    • Agreed! And let me know how it goes! 🙂

  8. Loved this! I think my avocado was probably pretty teeny tiny compared to yours, I found the Tahini just a touch too strong, so I added some chucks of avocado into it when I had leftovers. Also added some garlic because I have a problem -.- hahaha!

    • Hey, Jessica! You’re probably right about the avocado, but I’m so glad you found a solution. I love the addition of the garlic. Thanks for sharing your experience, and I’m so glad you enjoyed the recipe.
