Chef's Tips

If you are a pesto lover, there are a world of varieties to try. A traditional pesto uses basil, pine nuts, and parmesan cheese. Try changing the basil for kale or cilantro, and trade in the pine nuts for walnuts, cashews, or pecans. While parmesan adds a savory, salty punch, you can also omit the cheese to make your pesto vegan. *If sun-dried tomatoes are ever too tough, simply soak them in water or oil 10 minutes to soften them up.
