Sun Dried Tomato Pesto Sauce

Here's a great sauce that is a play on a traditional basil pesto.

Instead we're using Sun Dried Tomatoes.

You can Sun Dry your own of course for the optimal experience, but store bought will work as well.

A variation on a classic Italian sauce: basil pesto mixed with the interesting flavor of sun-dried tomatoes.

Yield 2 c
Time 10 minutes
  • blender or chopping knife
  • large bowl
  • wooden spoon
  • 2 c fresh basil, packed
  • 3-5 cloves garlic, minced
  • ½ c chopped pine nuts or walnuts
  • ½ c grated Vegan Parmesan Alternative
  • 5-6 T olive oil
  • 6 oz oil-packed sun-dried tomatoes, chopped
Directions If you have a blender, put everything but the olive oil in and process until finely chopped. Stir in the olive oil and serve.

If you don't have a blender, chop the basil until it is dark green, pasty, and no longer resembles basil (about 5 minutes).

Mix chopped basil with the other ingredients and serve.


This is wonderful over pasta, especially topped with a grated vegan cheese.
