Avocado Pasta with Walnuts & Cherries

Holy F*CK are #cherries expensive! Always, always, ALWAYS look at price tags of any "common enough" food item. Jayzus!


Anyway...this was a bit weird, but very delicious. If cherries ever dip in price again, I'll definitely give it a go.


Avocado Pasta with Walnuts & Cherries

Changes: used gluten free pasta; replaced almond milk with coconut milk; used just walnuts since I can't have cashews or almonds; used basil paste instead of fresh basil


Ingredients

4 servings gluten-free penne (I used cassava flour based)

1/2 cup coconut milk

1 #avocado

1 handful #walnuts

1 tbsp nutritional yeast

1 tsp tahini

1 tbsp lemon juice

1 clove garlic

2 tbsp Gourmet Gardens basil paste

S&P, to taste

15 cherries, pitted and halved

2 cups #spinach, roughly chopped


Instructions

Cook pasta according to package instructions.


Meanwhile, blend coconut milk, avocado, walnuts, nuritional yeast, tahini, lemon juice, garlic, basil paste, and S&P to taste. Set aside.


When the pasta is ready, drain it and return it to the pot. Add the sauce and combine well, and then the cherries and spinach with a few more stirs. Plate and enjoy!
