nuts & seeds plant-based pesto
by Jackie Newgent | August 14, 2020 | 2 Comments
There’s no such thing as too much basil because … pesto! More specifically, this nuts & seeds plant-based pesto! While I always feel strangely guilty about pulling off so many basil leaves from my plants, leaving them rather naked, I never feel guilty when diving into a dollop (or four!) of freshly prepared pesto. I make it sooo many different ways—and make it really, really, really often in the summer, if you didn’t already know that about me! But, this 100% plant-based pesto is definitely one of my newest favorite versions. Enjoy it on anything … or just plain pasta!
What’s that in the photo above, you ask? It’s casarecce pasta tossed lightly with this pesto and tossed not-so-lightly with pan-charred green veggies (I used broccoli, broccolini, zucchini, and snap peas). It’s then sprinkled with shelled hemp seeds, crushed red pepper flakes, and some small basil leaves. Yum it was!
