Pesto, O Pesto

As Google defines this: “a sauce of crushed basil leaves, pine nuts, garlic, Parmesan cheese, and olive oil, typically served with pasta.”

  1. Basil leaves
  2. Pine nuts
  3. Garlic
  4. Parmesan cheese
  5. Olive oil

Sadly, there are people in the world who can’t eat nuts or cheese *raises hand*. I really miss a good ol’ fashioned milkshake and a slice of New York Baked Cheesecake after a steak dinner.

This is what my brain popped up today, pesto-wise:

  1. Fresh Basil/Heirloom Tomato/Roasted Garlic/Olive Oil, possibly age goat cheddar cheese
  2. Stripped Cucumber/Sauteed Spinach cooked w Slivered Garlic/Grilled Watermelon, Smoked Oak Salt, Almond Oil
  3. Chopped Arugula, Roasted Watermelon, Fresh Basil, Toasted Garlic, Lemon Oil
  4. Pureed Avocado, Fresh Cilantro, Roasted Spinach w Shallots, Mini Heirloom Tomatoes, quartered, Macadamia Oil
  5. Roasted Endives with Bacon Fat, Fresh Italian Parsley, Roma Tomatoes, one roasted clove of Garlic, Olive Oil

I miss cheese.
