A great thing about having a garden and putting things by is the summery reminder certain flavors can bring back to you in the middle of winter. In late September, before the basil was nipped by frost, I made a few batches of pesto. This included a little Thai Basil Pesto which we enjoyed that very day. Today we were able to enjoy the taste of late summer with some of the Genovese Basil Pesto I had made.
As I mentioned before my Thai Pesto recipe, I used the recipe from Vegan with a Vengeance but you can find other vegan pesto like Post Punk Kitchen’s Besto Pesto, Whole Foods Market’s Vegan Pesto, or Vegan Spoonful’s Vegan Pesto Sauce.
A warm bowl of Sunny Pesto on some noodles and a dollop of marinara sauce is just what a soul needs in the middle of a February cold snap.
