וועגאַנמאָפאָ: "די" איז פֿאַר טאָפּל-סטאַפט פּעסטאָ באַקעד פּאָטאַטאָעס

די “V” Word continues the וועגאַנמאָפאָ month of food with the letter “D”. הייַנט די בריוו “D” איז פֿאַר טאָפּל-סטאַפט פּעסטאָ באַקעד פּאָטאַטאָעס.

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, וואָס נישט? So I combined the pesto with the creamy potatoes and the result was fun, different and delicious.
