Planning on making a few different pestos to keep as quick meals
Anyone got any good ideas for them? The last vegan one I made was horrible

I just buy the ready made free from vegan pesto. Probably not the answer you were looking for.

I make a lovely oregano one. But that's because I have loads of oregano growing in the garden.

Look at deliciously Ella’s recipe for this and other recipes

I make a nice one with a bag of spinach, watercress and rocket salad, some roasted garlic cloves, olive oil and walnuts.

I find lemon juice and a little more olive oil (extra virgin so it has a bite) gives it the kick that can be missing from lack of cheese.

These all sound yummy!
Btw the one I was referring to was bog standard green pesto: basil, pine nuts, garlic, extra virgin olive oil and fresh lemon juice

Kale pesto is delicious. A girl called Jack has a great recipe. No cheese needed.

100g pine nuts (50g for a lighter version)
50g basil leaves
5 tbsp olive oil
2 cloves garlic
Juice 1 lemon
S+P
Toast pine nuts, leave to cool then blitz everything

Can swap pine nuts for any other nut, eg cashews, walnuts, brazils. And use other herbs eg parsley, coriander

Follow a basil pesto recipe but replace the parmesan with ground cashews.

You won't be able to do this until wild garlic is in season but the vegan version of this is delicious. www.thefoodwife.co.uk/?p=1080

Not really pesto but I made a nice sauce a few days ago - jar of roasted peppers and the oil they came in, 3 cloves of garlic, about 100g of cashew nuts, splash of apple cider vinegar. All whizzed up in the blender. Kind of a romesco. I made it to go over potatoes but the leftover sauce was really good on spaghetti
