This recipe will only require 15 minutes of your time to make this amazing bowl of creamy and rich avocado pasta! You can use any pasta of your choice for this recipe, but whole wheat pasta is a great option to choose for its high fibre content. Avocadoes are a great source of healthy fats and vitamins E, K, C, and much more! For the creamiest sauce, the secret lies in a perfectly ripe avocado and a fork! Once you try you will never reach for heavy cream again! ​

Ingredients:

 285 g pasta of choice
 3 large avocados
 16 g coriander
 1 shallot, diced
 2 cloves of garlic
 2 tsp maple syrup
 55 g vegan cream cheese
 0.50 tsp salt to season
 0.50 tsp cumin
 1 lemon juice

Directions:
