Creamy Avocado Pasta

When we received the box of Spring spirulina pasta, we were surprised to see the green colour that was neither due to spinach nor broccoli. It was due to spirulina, which is a 3.5 billion-year-old blue-green algae that converts greenhouse gases into usable nutrition, protein and oxygen. Spirulina is not only rich in vitamins and minerals but also 100% organic. This protein-rich pasta has its own taste and to ensure there is no compromise on the taste, we created this our own creation – an avocado-based creamy pasta sauce which could be preserved for 4-6 days when refrigerated. This makes this pasta fully vegan too!
