Where did I find it?
Why do I like it?
When someone posted this recipe on Facebook, I knew I wanted to foolproof it! I have tried several non-dairy pesto recipes but haven't been satisfied with the results. This one, however is a winner. The recipe uses almonds instead of pine nuts and it makes all the difference. This dish is really two recipes in one - you can use the pesto for other meals, spread on other sandwiches or toss with pasta. It would probably be great on cauliflower steaks!
This was my first time making a recipe from Thug Kitchen, although I have heard of them! The wording is vulgar, so be warned if it would offend you. I found I was laughing out loud as I read it and created this dish.
Any recipe notes or tweaks?
I decided to cut down on the amount of oil by half and the recipe still worked well.
