Pesto Piggy

Katie, I’m obsessed with your raw vegan pesto sauce…but I keep unrawing and deveganizing it. 😉

I first made Katie’s pesto sauce on Sunday, and I’m already on my second batch. The past 2 nights for dinner, I’ve made pesto goat cheese burgers.


To make, I combined 1 lb. grass fed finished beef with 2 heaping TBSP pesto and about 2 ounces crumbled goat cheese. I then formed 4 burgers and grilled them on the George Foreman for 7 minutes. So much flavor, and I love melted cheese in my burgers rather than on top!

This morning after a 45-minute walk with the pups, I once again had pesto on the brain and made a pesto goat cheese omelet with a side of homegrown local tomatoes (thanks again JacobC!).


I love this pesto because it doesn’t contain any cheese, and it’s not oily. Thanks again for sharing the recipe Katie!

What is your favorite way to eat pesto? I love using it as pizza sauce. :)

If you get a chance, please check out my guest post over at Bikini Birthday. It was not an easy post for me to write, and I’m sure many of you can relate to my bathing suit anxiety.
