全素鳄梨果奶油意大利面 Creamy Vegan Avocado Pasta

Avocados are nutritious fruit with abundant nutrients such as fiber, potassium, Vitamin E, B-vitamins, and folic acid. These fruits does not contain any cholesterol or sodium, and are low in saturated fat. They also act as a "nutrient booster" by enabling the body to absorb more fat-soluble nutrients, such as alpha and beta-carotene and lutein, in foods that are eaten with the fruit.

鳄梨果, 也称名为牛油果,是一种营养含量很高的水果。它的营养成份有纤维,钾,维他命E,B和叶酸等。就因如此,鳄梨果也被吉尼斯世界纪录里评为最有营养的水果。除此以外,这些水果不包含任何胆固醇或钠,它们还充当“养分助推器”能使身体吸收更多脂溶性营养物,例如α-和β-胡萝卜素和叶黄素,在被食用与水果的食品。

Apart from eaten as fruits, avocados is also a good alternative to saturated fat laden recipes. Hence, in place of using double cream for my pasta, I have opted to use blended avocados for my vegan version of creamy pasta.

Its truly yummy and healthier than the milk cream version. Yum!
