Pesto Pasta, Veggies, & Bread

On the menu today: *Best-O Pesto from The Everyday Vegan over whole wheat pasta
*Corn cut off of the cob after roasting it in the oven
*Broccoli steamed to perfection
*My favorite bread w/ Earth Balance

Everything was very yummy! The pesto was a nice change from the oily pestos I am use to. I don’t have a food processor, so I had to blend all of the pesto ingredients in my blender–which was a little bit difficult. I ended up adding some water & some extra olive oil to smooth things out and for better blending. Other than that–no complaints. I am going to use the leftover pesto to put on a ready-made pizza crust for tomorrow’s dinner.

I do have a question for everyone: How do you usually cook your corn on the cob?

Julie, this looks great. I love Dreena’s pestos because they aren’t oily and runny. Yum to this whole meal! And wow, perfect brocoli!

I usually boil my corn or wrap it in foil so it doesn’t touch anything that was dead on a grill (we have a vegan grill though). You know I don’t do anything in the oven… he he.
Great post.

thnx, Les! I can’t wait to try that sun dried tomato pesto of Dreena’s..mmmm.

I’ll have to give boiling a try or wrap it in foil on a grill. We don’t have a grill, so-I would have to use our communal apartment grill–ewww. Who knows what’s been grilled on that thing. 😦

Perfect meal! I didn’t enjoy it until this past year, but I’ve been craaaaving pesto lately..

For my corn on the cob – I prefer it grilled, and then spread with some earth balance and sea salt. I like it raw too, or cut off the cob and in tofu scramble.

jess-oh, yeah–pesto is soooo good!

corn of the cob raw, huh? i’ll have to try that!

Comment by Julie

I’m a boiler or a grilller…but sometimes I do raw. I must admit, I eat more frozen then off the cob. The cobs are so big and bulky and hard to cary home on my bike with all the other groceries.

dinner looks awesome — especially the pasta w/pesto.

i usually boil our corn – we don’t have a grill, or i’d probably do that too. i like to cut it off the cobb for the girls and also for salads & stuff.

Julie, I love roasting corn in the oven, too! Hard to do when it’s 100 degrees outside, but mighty, mighty tasty.
My favorite corn on the cob condiment is a mixture of extra-virgin olive oil, lemon, pepper, salt, and minced parsley. Mmmmm!
