Pesto is such an easy flavor boost for everything from steamed greens and baked potatoes to tofu sandwiches and guacamole (try it!). Though basil is the base of the classic pesto Genovese, you can swap in any herb or green for an interesting twist. The trick to retaining depth of flavor after ditching umami-laden Parmesan is the specific mix of nuts.
