Guilt-free Super Creamy Spaghetti (Vegan)

Here is a very tasty dish that takes about 20 minutes and has only 3 or 4 ingredients! What more could one want? Oh! You like it creamy and guilt-free? Well, ticked and ticked my friends! This can be as creamy as you like. Dairy free and suitable for vegans.

Here I used a ripe avocado to provide the creamy-ness. It’s a new ‘thing’. You eat your veg and give your body good fat instead of saturated fat in cream. After eating this you will ask yourself ” Why I hadn’t tried this before?”

I know it’s only spaghetti with tomatoes but I never add such a thick cream to my food, so it was very pleasing to eat that and not feel guilty.

INGREDIENTS:

  • Thin Spaghetti
  • 1 medium ripe avocado (provides enough sauce for two servings)
  • Small tomatoes (cut in halves)
  • Fresh Basil
  • Garlic (as much as you fancy)
  • Salt and pepper
  • Olive oil

METHOD:

  1. Boil your spaghetti according to the instruction on the packet, meanwhile skin and seed the avocado, put it in the blender with a 3/4 of cup of water, some fresh basil and give it a good blitz until smooth and creamy. You need to achieve the consistency of a thick yogurt. Add more water if you need but try to avoid making it too runny!  Season the sauce.
  2. Add olive oil to a pan, add finely chopped garlic and the tomatoes on a medium heat until everything is a bit soft and gooey.
  3. Add the spaghetti to the pan, pour the sauce on top and mix gently with  a fork. Now…isn’t it yummy?

Thanks for looking and come back soon!

  1. I love how quick this is and how creamy and delicious it looks. YUM!

  2. I’ll have to try this! I love a nice creamy pasta and like you don’t like to use cream. Never thought to use avocado. It’s a great idea and it looks very attractive!

  3. Wife made us this tonight! I wondered why he was so keen to go in the kitchen and cook!

  4. This is brilliant, Nargess! I do make this dish without the avocado. I love creamy pastas, and all I have to add is the avocado. Did I say this was brilliant? 🙂

  5. What a great sounding sauce!
