When I was intolerant to dairy, I tried making new substitutions for all my favourite foods! Pesto was one of those items. I love pesto on eggs, pasta, potatoes, vegetables, stuffed peppers, and even pizza! I was so happy to make a version of pesto that made my taste buds all the happy. Even though I can tolerate dairy again, I still can’t get enough of this sauce! My 7-month-old daughter is following my lead and loves it just as much as me.
