 Ingredients List

  • 1 9-oz. cucumber, peeled
  • 2 ripe avocados, pitted
  • 2 cloves garlic
  • juice of 1 lemon
  • 1 teaspoon tahini
  • a few fresh basil leaves (optional)
  • 1/3 cup or so of fresh cilantro leaves (or parsley, if you prefer)
  • Salt & fresh ground pepper, to taste
  • Pasta of your choice (I used angel hair)
  • For the top: fresh sweet cherry or grape tomatoes, feta cheese crumbles, toasted pinons (pine nuts), fresh cilantro and/or basil leaves


1. Cook the pasta.

2. While the pasta is cooking, in a handi chopper or food processor, blend together the cucumber, avocados, garlic, lemon juice, tahini, and herbs. Add salt & pepper to taste. (Take it easy on the salt if you're adding salty feta on top.)

3. Drain the water from the pasta and toss it with as much sauce as you feel is needed. (Save the rest for a dip or another use.) Top with halved cherry tomatoes, feta cheese crumbles, toasted pinons and garnish with fresh cilantro and/or basil. Enjoy!
