Tricolour carrot pasta with guacamole sauce - raw vegan with options


Anything with avocado has to be a winner, well it is for me! It's avocado season at the moment, they are abundant, cheap and you can get the beautiful creamy Hass as well as the big fleshy Reeds. I have a large wooden bowl that is always full if them at various stages of ripeness... no chance of this little black duck not having a ripe avo!!

This is a little something I whizzed up for us to take on one of our picnics last week. It was amazing! For my husband I added some cooked roast chicken, boiled egg and some fried rice I'd made the night before. He loved it.

Red capsicum diced
1 tbs sunflower seeds
