Green Goddess Pasta

A delicious summer cold pasta dish with a creamy avocado yogurt dressing, flavoured with fresh herbs, cumin, and lemon, topped with crunchy dukkah and fresh tomatoes.

I first made this dish when I didn't know what to make for dinner but it was really hot out, I blended up a bunch of ingredients in my fridge and made the most delicious cold pasta dish that I just had to share with you all. It's super versatile so as long as you have a base of avocado and yogurt, you can add whichever herbs or greens you may have on hand, for a little twist on this version. I even added a fresh jalapeno for a spicy kick.

So add everything to the blender, cook your pasta, a fun shape like casarecce works really well for all that sauce to cling onto, then simply serve up with a summer veg like tomatoes, corn or even peppers for a sweet contrast of flavour. Top with dukkah - a middle eastern spice blend/condiment for that extra crunch and you've got yourself an easy and delicious summer recipe, for even the hottest of days.

Green Goddess Pasta | Serves: 4 | Time: 15 mins

You'll need

  • Chopping board
  • Knife
  • Food processor
  • Saucepan
  • Measuring cups and spoons


  • 250g pasta (I used casarecce)
  • 50g herbs (I used dill, parsley, mint)
  • Large handful (50g) baby spinach
  • 2 spring onions
  • 1 clove garlic
  • 1/2 cup vegan Greek yogurt
  • 1 avocado
  • Juice 1 lemon
  • 1 tsp ground cumin 
  • 1/2 jalapeno (optional)
  • Good pinch salt
  • 1/4 cup water
To serve:
  • 2 salad tomatoes
  • Dukkah
  • Olive oil


  1. Bring your water to a boil and add a generous amount of salt, then cook your pasta and drain.
  2. Meanwhile, add all your sauce ingredients to the food processor, apart from the water and blitz until smooth, then drizzle in the water until you reached desired consistency. Taste for seasoning and adjust as needed.
  3. Dice up a tomato or your summer veg of choice.
  4. Then mix the pasta with the sauce whilst hot, it will absorb some of the pasta but let it cool for a few minutes, or chill before serving.
  5. Serve up with diced tomato and a good sprinkling of dukkah and enjoy!
