Next Level Comfort Food Made Healthy: Plant-based Pesto

A few weeks ago when Mona was in town we made this pesto pasta for lunch and let me tell you it went over so well we practically licked the bowl. I’ve always loved pesto but cheese is typically the primary ingredient in most traditional sauces.  This plant based pesto really hits the spot even if you’re not vegan (you won’t even notice actual cheese isn’t in the sauce) . We just added mushrooms and kale but feel free to get creative and sauté up whatever veggies you love or have on hand.



  1. Cook pasta by following instructions on the box
  2. Sauté mushrooms and kale in pan with 1 tbs of water or avocado oil
  3. Once pasta is done cooking put it in the pan with veggies and mix in pesto sauce
