About: I am Sophie & have a foodblog: Sophie's Foodie Files! I cook mostly tasty healthy & colorful dishes with Sophie's twist! I also cook a lot of vegan dishes! I also bake & eat sometimes gluten-fre…

This invented pasta dish of mine, has had a lot of success, all year round! It is easy to make, fresh, delicious & apart!

The avocado pesto itself is Vegan & Gluten-free! I know that you all will love this too! To make it completely Gluten-Free , use GF pasta. To make this meal completely Vegan, leave out the smoked salmon, use tofu or seitan! :)

Step 1: Ingredients!

Recipe: For 3 persons


1 ripe avocado, avocado cut into 2, big stone removed with a knife, avocado flesh scooped out with a large spoon

3 fat cloves of garlic, roughly cut up

1 cup of fresh cleaned basil leaves, pushed into the cup

4 tablespoons of a fruity evoo

zest of 1/2 organic unwaxed lemon juice of the same 1/2 lemon

1/2 teaspoon of Maldon sea salt

20 grins of finely milled black pepper

330 gr of white spelt farfalle

150 gr of good smoked salmon, thinly sliced

1/4 cup of toasted pine nuts / How to toast your pine nuts? Take a fitting non-stick pan & heat up on low. Place your pine nuts in here, in 1 layer in it. After a few minutes, the nuts begin to get brownish in colour & will get fragrant. Turn the heat onto lower but don’t let the nuts burn,…Turn them over & they must be brownish on both sides! Turn the heat off. Now, you have toasted pine nuts!

Step 2:

Cook your spelt farfalle according to your packet instructions. Drain well. Keep warm. In the meantime, make your avocado pesto! Take a food processor & add cut up garlic, basil leaves, olive oil, avocado flesh, zest & juice of 1/2 lemon, sea salt & black pepper. Pulse or mix on speed 1 again & again or until fully joined. Taste! You must taste the basil, lemon, garlic & in the end the avocado. It must taste awesome! :)

Step 3:

Cut your smoked salmon pieces into smaller pieces, like picture above, about 50 gr per person, per plate.

Step 4:

Plate up! Divide the spelt farfalle over 3 pasta plates. Add to each pasta plate, a dollop of 2-3 on top of the pasta. Arrange your smoked salmon pieces besides the pasta dish, like picture above & place a cooked spelt farfalle in the middle, on top of the avocado pesto! Enjoy instantly with loves one’s! :) Avocado power, yeah! xxx
