Creamy Avocado Pesto Pasta

Creamy Avocado Pesto Pasta

Author: Bonnie Taub-Dix

This dish contains an array of my favorite things: pasta, avocado, veggies, and basil. And if you’re a pesto lover, like my family, you’ll wonder why you never thought of blending a California avocado with this sauce years ago! Besides an incredible flavor and creamy texture, you can feel free to improvise and add little more or less of each component or even include your own personal faves. Nutritionally, this dish is a nutrition power house with a high potency of vitamins C (220% DV) and K (270 % DV), an excellent source of vitamin A (60% DV) and Fiber (28% DV) and a good source of potassium (17% DV).

Sweet Potato Hash Recipe with Creamy California Avocado Sauce

Sweet Potato Hash Recipe with Creamy...

Author: Dara Michalski

There is no doubt that avocados fit snugly into many breakfast dishes. This sweet potato hash pops with color and flavor, thanks to a creamy avocado sauce. For the sauce, the California Avocados are tossed in the blender with some Greek yogurt, lime juice, garlic, salt and pepper. The result is a spreadable sauce that begs you to eat it with a spoon. So it’s a good thing that there’s a little leftover in this recipe!
