Yummy in my Tummy
Well, after a few days of uninspiring dinners, J and i trucked down to Kensington and bought the needed groceries for this week's challenge. While there, we picked up other goodies like fresh fiddleheads, good bread, vintage tops, gifts for friends, and raspberries. But, i digress.
This was a team effort by the two of us - which doesn't happen often. One thing i learned while mashing up all the broccoli, is that i need a much bigger food processor (good thing i asked for one on my wish list!), but otherwise this recipe really worked for us. Of course, we tweaked it a bit. Like, instead of the just almonds, we used cashews and almonds. And, like Mishka, we only have red miso here, but i love miso and was happy to put it in my pesto!
I liked the pesto so much that i can't wait to play with my leftovers - this recipe does call for way too much sauce for 2 people. But, tomorrow we're having pesto pizzas and i'm having pesto sandwiches for lunch. The other thing is, and this is probably just how it turned out for me, but i liked the sauce way better on it's own than with the rotini noodles we paired it with - took away the zappy flavour.
All in all, a good meal - see we vegans can have tasty food!
