I’m currently rewatching Netflix’s Sense8 all over again from the start. If you’ve never watched it, the general basis of the show is shared human connection in an extraordinary way. It’s finished, and unfortunately may not come back, but what a show. It makes me wonder sometimes what being a part of a cluster would be like – aka being so connected to a group of people that you can share their love, their pain and all their experiences.
Except I’ve come to realise that we do that every day. Maybe not to the sci fi extent of Sense8, but we all the ability to be so close to a group of people that its as if we are one. We know what makes them laugh, cry, and come together in harmony. For me, that’s my family and I’m so grateful to have such a powerful group of loved ones around me, at all times. Who genuinely look out for me, see me for me, and care so, so much.
What do we do for the ones we love? We feed their souls! In my case, it’s literally feeding them. That’s why I love a meal like pasta. It’s such an inviting dish – built for a group, to come around, to share, to partake, to be one. A dish such as this 20 Minute Vegan Pesto Pasta means you don’t have to go out of your way to create an extravagant meal to show that you love someone. It can happen very quickly meal prepping in the morning, or slowly in the evening after work. Your decision. Sometimes all we want is a nice and simple dish like a vegan pesto pasta.
I’ve made many a pesto pasta before, and many different kinds of pestos. You can choose from parsley pesto, or kale pistachio pesto, a more classic basil pesto or a different creamy cashew pea pesto. I’m including my basil pesto below, although I used a mix of kale for this dish. It’s so easy to customise, so feel free to use what’s available to you. Or maybe you just want a store-bought natural pesto or one from the farmer’s market, which is totally okay too. Food is supposed to work for you, not the other way around. Either way, this creamy vegan pesto pasta meal will work for anyone. It’s easy to make, loaded with raw nutrition, so tasty and very inviting.
20 minutes is all you need. Let me break it down for you:
