Vegan Parsley Almond Pesto

Pesto, who will say no to this beautiful Italian sauce. Pesto sauces are versatile, you can have it with pastas or simply as dip with bread or else to spice up any dish. Parsley pesto was in my to do list since a long as i usually get them from stores. Dunno y i couldnt make this parsley pesto earlier, but finally one fine day i couldnt resist myself to get some bunch of super fresh parsley leaves just to make this parsley pesto. I used almonds instead of usual pine nuts, pine nuts are bit expensive here when compared to almonds.

Garlicky parsley pesto

This parsley pesto can be prepared just in matter for 5 minutes, just blend everything and your pesto is ready to relish with your favourite pasta. Pesto suits prefectly awesome while the weather is super hot as this sauce doesnt need any cooking process.As usual i didnt add any cheese in this pesto, obviously its vegan but with some garlic. Garlic gives a fantabulous flavour to this simple but still very aromatic pesto.Am running my second week of blogging marathon with pasta in different sauces as theme, hence am posting this catchy parsley pesto.Check out the Blogging Marathon page for the other Blogging Marathoners doing BM#50.
