Double the pesto recipe and keep it parve to enjoy an array of fabulous pesto-based meals. I’ve used this base as a dressing for salad, with melted cheese on peppers and mushrooms, and even as a dip at the Shabbos table. Add olive oil as needed to achieve a more liquid consistency.
Here’s what I served the last time pesto chicken was on the menu:
• Broccoli soup
• Pesto chicken on a bed of mashed potatoes (sweet potatoes or cauliflower works great too)
• Sugar snap peas (lightly sautéed with lots of garlic)
• Sliced apples (we always conclude our meal with a fruit)
