Instructions
Vegan Pesto
  1. Combine the ingredients into a blender or food processor and process until you’ve reached your preferable texture. Taste and adjust seasoning, if necessary.
Blistered Tomatoes
  1. If using the oven, preheat the broiler. Place the tomatoes onto a sheet pan, toss in the oil, season with salt, and broil until the tomatoes crack and begin to breakdown. Optionally, heat your grill over medium high heat. Toss your tomatoes with oil and salt and place on a grill basket until bubbly and cracked.
