Gluten Free Pasta Recipe Vegan

Guacamole Pasta Salad (Vegan, Gluten Free)

I’m used to having pasta salads made with lots of mayo, but ever since I discovered what a great replacement avocado is for mayo, I’ve been making more vegan-ized versions of dishes that usually contain the other.

Being a carb lover, it’s always fun to experiment with different pastas that are not only gluten free, but loaded with protein; like the black bean pasta rotini from Trader Joes.

Add some traditional guacamole ingredients, and now you have a side that’s ready to wow any picnic or pot luck or BBQ; more importantly, you have a dish that is loaded with nutrients and wholesome yumminess.

Prep Time 20 minutes

Ingredients

  • 1 12 oz. bag black bean pasta
  • 2 garlic cloves minced
  • 2 cocktail tomatoes chopped
  • 1 avocado medium dice
  • 1/4 cup cilantro chopped
  • 2 tbsp lemon juice
  • 2 tbsp avocado oil
  • 1 tsp salt
  • 2 tsp pepper

Instructions

  1. In a large pot, cook the black bean pasta in 3 cups of boiling water for about 8 minutes or until tender, then strain and rinse with cool water until the pasta is cooled, and set aside.

    (tip-> tossing in a little oil helps the pasta avoid getting sticky). 

  2. Prep all other ingredients for the pasta salad, toss together with the black bean rotini, and store in the fridge.
