Hello spring, and hello vegan pesto garlic bread! Pesto is our go-to sauce every spring, when the fresh herbs start popping up around the homestead.

This pesto garlic bread goes great with creamy tomato spinach pasta, as a side with instant pot risotto, or just as a quick lunch on a busy day. Use any kind of bread you have on hand, pesto of your choice, and mangia!

Easily Grow Fresh Basil on Your Counter All Year Long

We got this great 6-Pod Aerogarden which is fantastic for growing herbs in the winter or spring.  We actually got it when we lived in a smaller apartment, but even now that we own an acreage we still use it year-round!  I love growing herbs on my countertop like fresh basil, dill, mint, sage, thyme, parsley, and lemon balm. It uses LED lights and water, so no messy soil needed – you can have fresh herbs at your fingertips any time. I love picking a few springs of parsley to chop on pastas, adding basil leaves to dishes like this pesto, and tossing some dill in with my pasta salads. This Aerogarden is a great gift for anyone who would like fresh herbs… no big kitchen or green thumb required!

How Do I Make Vegan Pesto Garlic Bread?
