The first recipe this week, a red cashew tomato pesto, comes a bit late, Of course, because of Carnival, why else, here in Düsseldorf. This time, we didn’t celebrate carnival in the classic sense, e.g. dressed as Super Mario and Princess Peach. Well, maybe as Super Mario and Princess Peach, but completely incognito in civilian clothes at home in the kitchen by the stove.
A Good Bread Needs Time
And we baked our second gluten-free sourdough bread. Unfortunately, this time it was a bit too dry. We are still figuring out the right rise time for the flour mixture we created. Apart from that, I tried to bake a raspberry tart, it was the first test. The crust is perfect, but the filling was a real disaster. But more on that when the recipe will finally be delicious and online. Today we started the third bread trial.
The saying “all good things come in threes” turned out to be true again. This time the bread was perfect. So the recipe can finally be completed and you soon will be able to bake as many delicious gluten-free bread loaves as you want. But be careful – you may become addicted. At home I said to Super Mario that if we have this bread here every day, I will weigh twice as much next year. It is very nutritious and I have had days when I found myself eating almost only bread with one of our delicious spreads. You just feel like you don’t need anything else anymore.
The Best Vegan Tomato Pesto
Today, I would like to introduce you to one of our delicious spreads. The best vegan red pesto in the world. Why is it the best one in the world?Because it’s prepared in no time, and consists only of sundried tomatoes, cashew nuts, a little olive oil and dry yeast. The dry yeast fantastically mimics the taste of parmesan cheese.
You’ll simply love it. All I really need is this red cashew tomato pesto, the bread mentioned above, a delicious cup of coffee, a few episodes of Mindhunter on Netflix together with Super Mario on the couch and the world can’t be more perfect 🙂
By the way, you can get the best sundried tomatoes here.
I don’t earn anything from the link, but you have to try these tomatoes, although they are a little more expensive. BUT they are incredibly delicious. The pesto-addiction will become even stronger with these tomatos, I promise. Another important note: Do not take pickled dried tomatoes, only “dry” ones.
Note: If you are not in Europe and maybe can’t or don’t want to order via this shop, these organic sundried tomatoes might be a good alternative for you.Print
