Dairy Free - Gluten Free - Vegan
Another addition to my never ending love affair with pesto. I just can’t get enough of it, it’s so easy to make and endless options. A go to for me when I need a quick sauce – nuts, oil and greens/herbs and you’re pretty much set!I don’t know why exactly it took me so long to add miso to my pesto but boy am I ever glad I did! It adds such a nice flavour complexity and texture. I made this batch and in one day used it for both lunch and dinner. I put it on the beet noodles you see above and on some baked chicken breasts I made later that night, it’s so versatile.
So next time you’re serving up your favourite pasta, noodles, or maybe a sauce for your pizza, try this pesto out and let me know what you think!
