VeganMoFo: "D" è per doppio Stuffed Pesto patate al forno

Gli “V” Word continues the VeganMoFo month of food with the letter “D”. Oggi la lettera “D” è per doppio Stuffed Pesto patate al forno.

The basil was dying! I had bought a beautiful green bunch of basil, put it in water, and let the aroma fill the kitchen. Some of it got used but I had a lot left. While I was debating what dishes to use it in, it started to wilt. I had to use it and use it fast. But there wasn’t enough to make a full dish of pesto so I decided to try the other herbs and greens I happened to have on hand: cilantro, parsley and spinach.

When it comes to nuts, I love using walnuts for pesto. But again, I didn’t have a lot and knew I wanted to save some for muffins. How about cashews? Why not? So I used a combo of walnuts and cashews.

Turns out this Anything Goes pesto was the BEST tasting pesto I ever made! It was bright and verdant with a deep flavor. And it’s so pretty with it’s green speckled color. It’s my new favorite pesto!

Now I just had to decide what to do with it. I had a craving for baked potatoes and again thought, perché no? So I combined the pesto with the creamy potatoes and the result was fun, diverso e delizioso.

Serve 4.

For the Anything Goes Pesto:


4 cups mixed basil/parsley/cilantro/spinach
½ cup mixed walnuts/cashews
1 Tbs. succo di limone
2 Tbs. vegan parmigiano grattugiato
4 spicchi d'aglio
¼ di tazza di olio extra vergine di oliva
Sale e pepe qb


Put all ingredients into a food processor and mix until well combined. Refrigerate if not using right away. Cover with plastic wrap touching the top of the pesto.

For the Baked Potatoes:


6 patate ruggine
2 Tbs. burro vegan
¼ cup almond milk
Sale e pepe qb
1 cup Pesto (see above)


Scrub potatoes to clean them. Bake potatoes at 400 degrees for about one hour or until tender.

Scoop the flesh out of the potatoes into a bowl. Add the vegan butter, latte di mandorla, sale, pepper and pesto to the potatoes. Mix until well combined.

Stuff the pesto-potato mixture into 4 of the skins. Servire a caldo.
