GF Vegan Avocado Pasta With Smoky Paprika Roasted Seeds

March 2, 2020
We can all agree that avocado is awesome, but they have so much more potential beyond the avo toast. This pasta sauce is super quick to make and so much healthier than any store-brought sauce you would get out there. Don't worry, it only takes 30 minutes to prepare it because you have to cook the pasta, but that is the most difficult thing we have to do here. If you add a salad on the side, you can even cut back on the portion of pasta to make it even more figure-friendly. Not to mention the nutrients in avocado, such as healthy fats and antioxidant vitamin E, plus a group of carotenes which are thought to help keep the eyes healthy.
