We loved pesto before becoming plant-based, so we weren’t about to give it up because of parmesan cheese. Our version has flavour layers, using both mint, basil and two kinds of nuts. We normally toast our nuts before using them as it releases more flavour. But you do you.
Basil is native to India and Asia as well as parts of Africa, it contains blood clotting vitamin K and a healthy dose of vitamin A which is great for your skin. Basil is actually a member of the mint family, so it make sense to have mint in our recipe. Think of this pesto as a family reunion.
Pesto Presto is a great addition to any Pasta or Pizza. It’s also a wonderful marinade for portobello mushrooms, just apply to the gills and grill for a fast delicious munch.
