Dairy-Free Pesto.Saturday, September 10, 2011
I love regular pesto with parmesan cheese but because of the detox I'm on I cant have any dairy products except for buffalo mozzarella and goat's cheese *BARF*. So I went on an adventure to Whole Foods last night to find me some cheese-free pesto. The Whole Foods in Yorkville is HUGE. I could've spent a good hour in there browsing at all the fun and slightly expensive products they have. I love it! But my bf was dragging his feet and getting impatient so I made the trip there quick. I ended up finding Maison Le Grand pesto, sauces, and tapenades. Maison Le Grand is an eco-friendly line of cold-processed sauces made of natural, raw ingredients. SCORE! I immediately remembered that I tried these products a few years back at the Gourmet Food & Wine expo and they were super delicious. They have a wide variety of flavours such as lemon confit and pumpkin seed sauce, sundried tomato pesto, spicy olive tapenade, 4 nuts and cheese pesto, and the one I bought Garden Pesto! Garden pesto was exactly what I wanted, the ingredients are: basil, lemon zest and garlic! YUM!
I'm going to make brown rice linguine with chicken and pesto sauce next week!
