Avocado Pasta

by Mary Beth


I guess I am a glutton for punishment. Much like my ongoing banana bread tries, I am still trying to get pasta to turn out just right in the solar cooker. It’s not easy, and gluten-free pasta has it’s own challenges. So, for dinner I tried boiling the water in the solar oven, starting to cook the noodles in it, then bringing it inside to finish. I got close to normal. It was still a bit more al dente then I prefer. I suspect I was too afraid to leave it in long enough for fear I would ruin them. I’ll try this again soon to see how close I can get!

The recipe for the sauce is good and very easy. Thanks to OhSheGlows for it!

Avocado Pasta

Spaghetti noodles for 2 people

1 avocado

1/2 lemon’s worth of juice

1 clove garlic

Pinch salt

2 tsp dried basil

2 Tbsp water

Cook enough pasta for 2 people. I used gluten-free rice pasta.

To make the sauce, mix the remaining ingredients in the food processor till smooth.

Cover the pasta with the sauce and enjoy! This does not reheat well, so feel free to finish it all :)



Rating: I love the taste and the ease of the recipe! I would recommend this one!

Use a Parabolic to Boil Water
by: Bruce

A parabolic dish cooker, like the Solar Burner, works really well for boiling water and making pasta.
