GREEN BEAN AND BASIL PESTO
A dairy-free, fresh and chunky pesto that's super easy!
It’s the last of things. The intention of this post is to remind you that summer crops are on their way out so eat as many green beans, basil and tomatoes as you can. We wanted to have one last fling with summer ingredients, because we feel as though this season we blinked and we missed it.
**But if you are in the Northern Hemisphere, this should get you excited for the seasons to come.**
We are currently eating the last of the fresh tomatoes (this is literally the last of them). And watching our plants slow down, and the first summer plants start to die – this year it’s the tomatoes first. It is a little sad, grieving the summer garden, but there is something beautiful about it. A quietness we know is ahead for the winter.
This pesto is super fresh and has a little bit of natural sweetness from the beans. For the last few weeks we have just been having this with heirloom tomatoes as a simple salad - and it’s awesome. But it’s also great with fresh sourdough bread, eggs in the morning, new season potatoes, or tossed in pasta.
