Vegan MoFo: Sundried tomato pesto

sundried tomato pesto

It’s not particularly original I know but, along with my easy and quick white sauce, it can be rustled up in minutes which makes it indispensable when there is a cranky hungry child, or adult.

It simply involves blending up about 8 sundried tomatoes along with a little of the oil in the jar, a tablespoon of nutritional yeast and a big handful of basil. Sometimes I add in ground almonds if they happen to be in the cupboard. Once you’ve mixed it with the warm pasta you could throw in some spinach and really it should all be served with a salad but on the night before food shopping pasta on it’s own will do.

  1. It looks good on the pasta, the close up is less attractive. Is baby old enough for salt now or do you make your own sundried tomatoes with no salt?

  2. Hmmm, well, I still try and restrict her salt intake by not adding much to foods or adding it after I have served her but she does get some now.
