I do love me some avocado, I feel like they get a bit of a bad rap to be honest, promoted as being high in fat, when what the media fails to mention is while it is high in fat, it’s high in good fat, mono- and poly- unsaturated fats, fats that are good for you, which will help keep you and your heart healthy. I am all about keeping my ticker healthy, so as you can imagine I am a big fan over here!
So when I saw a recipe on Pinterest which was all Avocado and Noodle based (noodles are another big love of mine) you can imagine I marched the Mr straight out to Sainsbury’s to pick up the ingredients. This was a vegan recipe, but being a meateater myself I felt like there would be something missing with just an avocado sauce and noodles, so we picked up some quorn style chicken pieces to add.
- Soba Noodles
- Quorn Chicken
- Olive oil
- Boil your Soba Noodles.
- While the noodles are boiling chop up the garlic.
- Juice half the lemon.
- Add a tsp of olive oil.
- Blend together.
- Add half the avocado and blend.
- Drain noodles and add avocado mix.
- Mix & Eat.
- (*For the quorn if using it, cube and fry in 1 cal spray and add to noodles & avocado mix)
Such a simple yet tasty recipe, brilliant without the quorn for vegans, with quorn for vegetarians and for meat eaters you could even add chicken. 1 simple recipe which will work great, vegan or not.
