We are not Vegetarian or Vegan, however I am determined to bring more plant based meals in to our diet this year and with Veganuary in full swing, why not start with this Vegan Herb and Pistachio Pesto. It is simple to prepare and healthy and delicious to boot.
Give it try, it won't disappoint. It literally only took a few minutes to prepare and Can be served with pasta (as we did), or tossed in with roast potatoes, added to a salad, spread on pizza or added to roast vegetables perhaps.
Vegan Herb and Pistachio Pesto - A quick, simple and delicious dinner that is ready in minutes.
I chucked all the ingredients for the Vegan Parmesan Cheese into my Food Processor and blitzed it until it resembled the type of parmesan cheese you can buy in a pot, of the shelve at the shops. I then put this mix into an old coffee jar.
While cooking some pasta on the hob, I chucked all of the other ingredients, except the olive oil, into the Food Processor and blitzed it again until it came together and looked like a jar of shop bought pesto. Then with the blade spinning, I poured in the olive oil.
After cooking and draining the pasta. I plonked it all back in the saucepan and mixed the pesto into it before serving.
And there you have it, Vegan Herb and Pistachio Pesto.
