|Fettuccine with Basil-Pea Cream from Vegan Italiano|
I was expecting the dish to be a slightly sweeter version of pesto. But instead of the intense garlic or the herby burst of basil normally found in a pesto - all of the flavors ended up being a bit dull and muddied.
And I am beginning to wonder if the recipes in this vegan cookbook depend heavily on salt in order to make the flavors pop.
But, do not fear, I am not ready to throw in the towel quite yet.
I am going to try find a recipe in the book that does not require much salt and see how that one turns out.
I hope everyone is having a great Thursday!
