Vegan Pesto Sauce

 

Vegan Pesto Sauce

My family loves pesto so much that we always have it on hand in our refrigerator. We use it on sandwiches, cheese, tomatoes, and pasta. This particular pesto is so good that the first time I made it, my kids couldn’t even tell it was VEGAN! During the summer when I harvest basil, I make this and freeze it in small quantities so we can enjoy it all year long.
