This easy avocado pasta sauce is great on spaghetti for a quick, healthy, veggie supper.


  • 1 Ripe Avocado
  • 1 Small Garlic Clove
  • 1 tbsp Fresh Lemon Juice
  • 1/2 tbsp Extra Virgin Olive Oil
  • Sea Salt & Freshly Ground Black Pepper
  • 100g Spaghetti
  • Dried Chilli (Red Pepper) Flakes


  1. Put the pasta on to cook in a pan of well salted boiling water.
  2. Whizz up the avocado, peeled garlic clove, lemon juice, olive oil until smooth (if you’re using a mortar and pestle, crush the garlic until smooth then add everything else). Season to taste with lots of sea salt and black pepper, and a little more lemon juice if you think it needs it. 
  3. Drain the pasta, and stir in the sauce until everything is well coated.
  4. Serve, sprinkled generously with chilli flakes, more sea salt, a good few grinds of black pepper and a good squeeze of lemon juice. As I said, sharing is not recommended!
