This is what happens when we have two basil plants that are growing out of control! Trust me, it’s a good problem to have. I used to buy store bought pesto all the time, but it’s just so darn oily and the nutrition facts are a little scary. My mom brought over a vegan cashew pesto from Trader Joe’s one day and it changed my thoughts on store bought pesto. It was lighter, less greasy tasting and still delicious. So of course, I took it as a personal challenge to recreate at home.
