Many of you reached out to ask about this dish after I posted it on Instagram stories yesterday, so I figured I’d get this gluten free pasta recipe up ASAP! I’ll keep this post short & sweet to focus on this glorious, protein-packed recipe.
I’ve recently fallen head-over-heels in LOVE with chickpea pasta, because it’s filled with protein and doesn’t have the weird consistency that many gluten-free pasta alternatives have. It legit tastes like pasta.
I was sent a TON of variations of chickpea pasta ( from the brand Banza ), and I’m really into the ones I’ve tried so far: angel hair, linguine, & wheels. I’m dying to try the shells with a little butter/parmesan, too.
I’ve heard good things about quinoa pasta & red lentil pasta as well, so if you like those, you can definitely use this avo sauce on whatever it is you prefer ( for those of you who can eat regular/whole wheat pasta, same goes for y’all! ). Do what ya feel, beebs.
I just prefer chickpea pasta at the moment.
BTW– I got the below recipe from Damn Delicious, one of my favorite healthy-gal recipe destinations. I’ve tweaked things just a little, and usually just make HALF a full recipe, as I’m cooking for one ( forever single & alone, k bye ).
Another BTW– you’ll need a food processor or blender for this recipe!
what you’ll need
makes 2 servings
Banza Chickpea Linguine ( 2 servings ) or Pasta of Choice
2 Ripe Avocados
2 Cloves Garlic
1/2 Cup Basil Leaves
2 Tablespoons Lemon Juice
1/3 Cup Olive Oil

Appliances: Blender/Food Processor

5. Serve immediately.
This gluten free pasta recipe is one of my go-to’s lately, aside from a straight-forward pasta + marinara sauce classic. It’s a light recipe filled with protein, health fats, and good carbs ( aka: the three things I look for in a meal ).
