Ciao a tutti!
Where can you find vegan pesto in Italy?
Well, pretty much everywhere! There are enough choices and enough companies making vegan pesto,
heck, even Barilla makes a vegan pesto. Here is a list below of some of what you can find. You can find
them with or without garlic (for those who want to save their breath, breath odor that is) and you
can find them with different nut bases. Or with or without tofu. Some will have a pine nut base, others a cashew base, etc.
NaturaSi, a health food store, has a pretty good line of vegan pestos, however mainstream supermarkets
sell them, as well as specialty shops. And not only can you find the traditional pestos, veganized, made with basil,
but you can also find zucchini pesto, hemp pesto, or pesto with artichoke. Pesto with rucola is yet another version.
Oh, and don’t forget, you can also just type the name into yahoo and buy it directly online.
