CULINARY TWIST: A twist you never saw coming!
We adore the endless possibilities that pesto sauce presents; from the components of the pesto to the carrier in which to use pesto on! Though pine nuts are classically used in the preparation of a pesto, we like to switch things up and add walnuts, pecans, or almonds/almond powder as a replacement. But here’s the twist! Try topping your pesto pasta with a mixture of parmesan cheese and almond meal for added flavor and texture! The flavor combination is delicious and incredibly unique! Try adding lemon zest, salt, and pepper to almond meal as a complete substitute to parmesan cheese over pesto! Use your almond pesto and spread over sliced baguette for a delicious crostini appetizer. Another way we love to use this product is to replace it with breadcrumbs! Use almond meal instead of breadcrumbs on breaded foods to achieve wonderful texture on chicken fingers, cutlets, shrimp, tofu, and vegetables!
ABOUT ALMONDS: Did you know?
