  • 1 bag Trader Joe’s Organic Black Bean Rotini
  • feta cheese for garnish

Avocado Crema*

  • 1 avocado peeled and pitted
  • 3 tablespoons sour cream
  • 1 tablespoon fresh lime juice
  • 2 cloves garlic
  • 2 tablespoons fresh flat-leaf parsley chopped
  • Salt to taste


  • In a food processor, combine the avocado, sour cream, lime juice, garlic, parsley, and salt, and pulse until smooth. The consistency should be similar to sour cream - thick yet spreadable. To thin it, add a tablespoon or two of water and pulse to incorporate. Set aside.
  • Make black bean rotini pasta according to the instructions.
  • Serve about 3/4 cup of the black bean rotini with 1-2 tablespoons of avocado crema. Top with feta cheese crumbles and enjoy!


*The avocado crema will keep in an airtight container in the refrigerator for 1 day.
