High in protein thanks to the collagen bone broth and hemp seeds. Full of vitamins and minerals. The avocado base increases absorption of all the other ingredients. The perfect pasta base to enjoy with a protein source (with grilled chicken, it’s delish!). 

Dairy-free | Gluten-free (depending on the pasta) | Refined sugar-free | Serves 4 

Ingredients:

  • 1 medium ripe avocado (or two small ones) 
  • 1 cup fresh basil 
  • 2 tbsp hemp seeds
  • 1 garlic clove
  • Squeeze of lemon (to your desired taste)
  • 2 tbsp Collagen Bone Broth
  • 2 tbsp extra virgin olive oil 
  • 1 cup pasta water 
  • Salt & pepper to taste 
  • Chickpea rigatoni (or desired pasta) 

Method:

  1. Make your pasta according to packet instructions and reserve around 1 and ½ cups pasta water. 
  2. To a high-speed blender, add your avocado, basil, hemp seeds, garlic, lemon, collagen bone broth powder, olive oil, and salt and pepper. Start with adding a ¼ cup of pasta water and slowly add more to achieve your desired consistency. Blend until smooth and creamy. 
  3. Add the avocado sauce to your pasta, coating and mixing through thoroughly. 
  4. Serve with extra basil, hemp seeds and parmesan cheese (or nutritional yeast if dairy free) if desired. Dig in and enjoy! 

Notes:

  • This pasta is best eaten and served fresh as avocado slightly changes in flavour once reheated. 
  • It can last in an airtight container in the fridge for up to 1 to 2 days.
