A short and sweet (well, savory) post today, because… Monday.
Vegan Richa posted a shot of this amazing creamy basil sauce on her Instagram a few days ago, and I’ve been waiting for a chance to make it! It’s super simple and quick (especially if you have a high-speed blender), and it was absolutely delicious drizzled over roasted veggies (Brussels sprouts and broccoli) and brown rice.
Yes, this photo is crap. Sorry; I was irritated and hungry and not in the mood to find a better spot to snap a quick pic with my phone. Trust me when I say that the sauce tastes much better than it looks! The recipe made a respectable batch, and I think the leftovers will be great thinned out a bit and served as a salad dressing.
I’ve really been feeling the love for summer produce today! In addition to the broccoli and Brussels sprouts that made this dinner so satisfying, I enjoyed a perfectly ripe white nectarine and a criminally crisp Sansa apple earlier today. That apple almost — almost — made me feel OK about the inevitable end of summer and return of cooler weather.
For now, though, I’ll take 90˚ days and an abundance of produce, please and thank you!
