Avocado is extremely nutritious and works fantastically with sauces. In this recipe for avocado spaghetti, we use whole grain pasta, but you can use normal pasta.
Avocados are the basis of this healthy spaghetti dish. They contain a lot of calories but are still very good for you. At the same time however, industrially farmed avocados use up a lot of resources. It might be better to eat avocados on special occasions rather than on a daily basis.
Almost everyone likes spaghetti! This versatile recipe can be modified to meet everyone's different tastes.
Various ways of preparing avocado spaghetti
We recommend using almond or soya milk with this recipe, but you can also choose rice or oat milk. Try and buy an unsweetened version of these milk alternatives. As an alternative to grated cheese, garnish the spaghetti with a few flakes of nutritional yeast. Selecting a variety with added vitamin B12 makes it especially healthy.
