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

hi, I had a question about the dried parsley. is it just for color? I thought dried parsley had almost no flavor?

Sorry for the delayed response! It's definitely for flavor. If your dried parsley doesn't taste like anything, it may be old and past it's prime.

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.
