If there’s one thing it’s important to have in your vegan recipe repertoire it’s a good vegan pesto.
It’s super easy to throw together without notice and you can serve it with pasta for a 10-minute meal that will literally wow absolutely everyone.
It’s gourmet as heck while being ridiculously simple!
We used a mix of fresh basil and parsley in this vegan pesto as the parsley provides a lovely balance to the flavor.
And then we used a mix of pine nuts and walnuts for the same reason – the walnuts provide some balance to the stronger flavor of the pine nuts.
So the overall recipe has a lovely flavor balance between strong flavors and mild so that no particular flavor is overpowering.
