Miracle noodles with avocado sauce

Until very recently, I somehow managed to go my entire life without ever buying an avocado. Crazy, right? Well, since June I have totally made up for it. They are now my new favorite food, and I eat them all the time. Yes, they’re really fattening, but it’s the “good fat” so it’s okay. Right?

Initially I was just adding some avocado to my salad. But then last month, the day before I went upstate I realized that I had two ripe avocados in my fridge that probably wouldn’t last the four days until I came home. After a quick search for avocado recipes, I decided to make “spaghetti” with avocado sauce. The recipe was perfect because I had all of the major ingredients in my fridge – avocados, lime juice, salsa, and Miracle Noodles.

I’m not posting a link, though, because I wasn’t totally satisfied with the way it came out. The taste of the salsa was so strong that it turned it into a Mexican-flavored dish, which wasn’t what I had been aiming for. But the texture – omg it was so creamy!!

Here a link on how to cut an avocado that I found useful.

I only ended up using one avocado before I left, so when I came back from upstate the one that was in my fridge was super ripe. I decided to give the avocado sauce another try, this time following a recipe WITHOUT salsa. The result was amazingggg. I’ve made it a bunch more times since then, and I’m never disappointed.

The best part of this recipe is that it literally takes 5 minutes. In the morning before work I let the Miracle Noodles soak in water for a few minutes before putting them in one container, and I put the garlic, cilantro and lime juice in another container. I bring the containers and an avocado with me to work, and leave them in the fridge until lunchtime. Then I cut my avocado and mix it all up. Easy peasy.

    It wasn’t until about a year ago that I introduced avocados to my grocery list. Now, I love incorporating it into different recipes. Plus, I’m equally stoked for an upcoming vacation to Los Angeles because there’s a restaurant out there (near an old apartment of mine) that specializes in avocado burgers.

  2. Miracle Noddles are amazing! I love Miracle Rice too. Throw in some sauteed chicken and veggies and it makes for a tasty stir fry.

    Oh my gosh – how did you live so long without avocado? They are one of the things that make life worthwhile! 🙂 You’re now in a higher realm of existence, the Avocado plane.

  4. I can’t LIVE without avocado. I just made like 5 lbs of guacamole. Lol.
