Vegan Pesto for the Win…

I have always been a big pesto fan. I love it on anything from pizza to pasta to dunking bread into it, it is just too good. It’s even delicious spread on toast topped with some avocado and tomato for a breakfast/lunch treat. However, some of the mentioned above aren’t the healthiest for everyday life. So I have been making vegan pesto to lighten up the Italian classic & putting it over zucchini noodles for a light lunch or dinner side.

Not into Zucchini noodles? Try it on whatever you heart desires! It is even good as a dip with yummy crackers or veggies.
