Avocado & Cashew Pesto Pasta

I love this cashew and avocado pesto, not just with pasta but with everything: salad, toast, courgette spaghetti… anything, really! It can be made in just 10 minutes and it’s perfect for summer as it’s so fresh.

Here is the recipe, I hope you enjoy it:

Ingredients

For the pesto

  • 150g cashews soaked overnight
  • 1 ripe avocado
  • The juice of 1 and a 1/2 lemons
  • 30g of fresh basil
  •  4 tablespoons of olive oil
  • 3 tablespoons of water (use the water from the soaked cashews)
  • 2 teaspoons nutritional yeast
  • 2 garlic cloves
  • Salt and pepper to taste

For the pasta

  • 15 cherry tomatoes
  • 4 servings of pasta (I used brown pasta)

Method

  • Combine all the pesto ingredients in a food processor and blend until creamy. Add salt and pepper to taste.
  • Cook the pasta as per packaging instructions and allow it to cool under the tab. Drain and mix with the pesto sauce. Cut the cherry tomatoes in half and mix with the pasta.
