I have been growing my own basil for awhile now, and when it is flourishing, I love to make pesto. There are many interesting dishes that you can create with pesto, but today, I added roasted vegetables and pasta to make a delicious and unique flavor. This roasted tomato and brussel sprouts pasta with pesto has a rich garlic flavor that adds that extra yum. Gluten free, dairy free and vegan–you can’t get healthier or more delicious than this.
I love chai tea, and wanted to take that unique chai flavor and integrate it into other drinks. This Strawberry Chai Smoothie combines fresh seasonal strawberries, vegan cashew yogurt, nut milk and a combination of spices that create that yummy chai flavor. Light and fresh.
I have to admit, whenever a get a new kitchen toy, I make all the things that I can with it. My newest gadget is the Veggie Bullet. (Not sponsored, just use it and like it). It makes zoodles, and more zoodles quickly, and as you know, zoodle gadgets aren’t always easy to use. Using zucchini and yellow squash, I made this Zoodles With Avocado Basil Pesto dish for lunch. The secret to the great flavor in this dish is the Pesto–see if you agree.
This is a delicious version of fried rice, with jackfruit added to give it that feeling of having substance of meat or fish.
Rice noodles are a great addition to the menu when you are gluten free, and just want some noodles. Tossed with cabbage, carrots, garlic and green onions, it is a filling and tasty dish when you top with chili coconut cream.
