Five minute parsley and basil herb sauce.
Do you know what I love more than a tasty herb sauce all over my dinner plate?
An EASY tasty herb sauce, all over my dinner plate. 🙂
Because easy > complicated, any day of the week.
And it cannot, does not, will not.. get any easier than this five minute parsley and basil vegan herb sauce. I promise you.
So grab your herbs, throw them in your blender.. and we'll meet back here in five to continue our chat. mm k?
As much as I want to classify this sauce as nut free.. I'm a little hesitant because, there is some coconut action involved in here.. and google is not really sure whether coconuts are considered 'tree nuts' or seeds or fruits... or maybe all three??
Therefore, in the name of being extra careful for those who have a true tree nut allergy, i won't call this one 'nut-free' .. however, it is free of cashews, sunflower seeds, almonds, and all that other jazz that is usually found in vegan sauces/dressings.
So.. if you are looking for an alternative to cashews.. this my friends, is the pot of gold (or green?) at the end of the vegan rainbow.
You're very welcome and I truly hope you enjoy this all over your dinner plate as much as I do.
