Recipe for Lemon Cilantro Avocado Veggie Pasta

Lemon Cilantro Avocado Veggie Pasta

Ingredients:

  • 3 cups pasta made out of vegetables (I used the bulk section at Bamboo Market)
  • 2 c. spinach
  • 1 bunch cilantro
  • 1/4 c. onion finely diced
  • 4 garlic cloves finely chopped
  • 2 avocados diced
  • 1 can chickpeas drained and rinsed
  • 1 c. cherry tomatoes cut in quarters
  • 1/3 cup pine nuts

For the Dressing:

Juice of 1 large lemon

  • 1 tsp. agave/honey
  • 2 tsp. dijon mustard
  • 1/2 tsp. cumin

Directions:

1. Cook pasta separately, drain, and set aside.

2. Using a food processor, process cilantro and spinach until it becomes finely chopped. Set aside in a bowl.  Then add the garlic and onion to the food processor and do the same thing.  Once finely chopped, add the garlic and onion to the spinach/cilantro mix.

3.  Next, add in tomatoes, pine nuts, avocado, and beans.  Add cooked pasta. Stir altogether.

4.  Prepare dressing and stir into pasta mixture.  Enjoy!
