So of course I had to try it too - and veganify it (let's make that a word). And simplify it. And lottiefy it. So that's how I came up with "Lottie's famous avo sauce"! And of course Lottie doesn't serve her avo sauce on pasta but on zoodles (noodles made of spiralized zucchinis). Sometimes, when I'm in need of complex carbs (read: when I'm really hungry!) I mix my zoodles with wholegrain spaghetti though, which tastes amazing too! And during wintertime I warm up my zoodles ... but enough now, let's come to the recipe!
1 small zucchini
1/2 garlic clove
juice of 1/2 lemon
2 tbsp nutritional yeast (optional)
2 tbsp warm water
drizzle of olive oil
1 handful basil
1/2 tsp salt
some pepper and chilli (I like to use a lot of chilli!)
Spiralize your zucchini and put aside. Slice the flesh of your avocado inside the peel into little cubes and pour them into a bowl then. Add the lemon juice, olive oil, (nutritional yeast) and the warm water and either smash everything with a fork or quickly blend everything together. Chop the garlic and basil leaves into small bits and add them together with the seasonings into the sauce. Top your zoodles with the sauce and mix well.
I like to add some veggies on top too, and as mentioned already, you can add some wholegrain/rice noodles or just warm your zoodles up. IF YOU MAKE THIS please please please do tell me because it's my absolute favourite dish and I have to know how you like it!
P.S.: For vegetarians/non-vegans: You can use parmesan instead of nutritional yeast! ; )
