Easy Economical Pesto

I created this more economical plant-based version of pesto with walnuts rather than the traditional pine nuts, and nutritional yeast to replace the more inflammatory cheese. Walnuts are less expensive as well as the popular nut can usually be found in most kitchens while pine nuts are a less seldom used dry good. This version gives you more incentive to prepare this super healthy and delicious condiment more often.

The beautiful green color is a hint to the lovely heart energy enveloping you with this condiment and anything that you add it to. It is also energetically aligned with your lower chakras for optimal earthly living and the walnuts also add some brain or wisdom energy and the ability to trust your instincts.

Wild Rice and Sweet Corn Balls with Roasted Red Pepper-Walnut Dip

These nutty-sweet wild rice-sweet corn balls with a hint of heat are the perfect compliment to the smoky red pepper-walnut dip. It’s a match made-in-heaven appetizer sure to illicit oohs and ahhs at your next potluck get together. I even like this pairing as a vegan lunch or dinner; just add a side of greens or a crisp salad.
