Your Questions Answered:

Is there a substitute for nutritional yeast? No, there is not a substitute for this ingredient. Nutritional yeast will add a cheesy flavor to this sauce, so I highly recommend not subbing it out! You can find this ingredient at most grocery stores or online.

Where do I find liquid smoke? You can find liquid smoke at most grocery stores in the condiment section or find it online.

How do I make this gluten-free? Just swap out the pasta noodles for a gluten-free pasta of your choice! My favorites are Banza and Chickapea.

Do these keep well as leftovers? How do I store it? Pasta usually doesn’t keep well as leftovers when the sauce is already mixed in. However, you can add a tbsp or two of water, stir, and then heat through on the stovetop or in the microwave. Alternatively, you can store leftover avocado sauce then add it to the pasta noodles when you’re ready to eat.
