How It's Made: Quinoa Pasta


  • 700g of quinoa pasta
  • 1 avocado
  • 1/2 cup of almond milk
  • 2 tablespoons of lemon juice
  • 3 braches of fresh basil
  • 10 cherry tomatoes
  • 1 tablespoon of olive oil
  • 1 pinch of sea salt and fresh ground pepper
  • 2 tablespoons of vegan parmesan


  1. In a food processor, mix together the avocado, almond milk, lemon juice and basil. Salt and pepper generously.
  2. Cook the pasta according to the packaging instructions.
  3. Once cooked, toss the pasta in a salad bowl with a bit of olive oil so they don't stick together. Add the avocado sauce and toss.

  5. To serve, place a serving in each bowl, add the salsa, some fresh basil leaves and top with the vegan parmesan!
