VeganMoFo: "D" es de doble relleno Pesto papas al horno

La “V” Word continues the VeganMoFo month of food with the letter “D”. Hoy en día la carta “D” es de doble relleno Pesto papas al horno.

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, ¿por qué no? So I combined the pesto with the creamy potatoes and the result was fun, diferente y delicioso.
