Vegan Portobello Tomato Napoleon

Here's another easy and delicious recipe.

Water sauté a portobello mushroom cap as well as a few slices of any type of tomato of your choice.  I tend to use Roma tomatoes because I find them easier to deal with. Steam a few spears of asparagus. Take some smaller mushrooms of your choice, slice those, and steam (or water sauté) them for three minutes. Make the pesto sauce that I posted previously, which you can find here. Remove the veggies from their various cooking apparatuses, and I suggest that you place the portobello cap on some paper towels to soak up excess water. Stack to your liking, and you're done!

Vegan White (Mostly Raw) Pesto

This is probably the best sauce that I've ever made. It is simply delicious and easy-peasy to make.

Step 1: You'll want to start by making yourself a good cashew cream base. For this, I used water, raw cashews, a few raw walnuts, some white chia seeds, and some raw pumpkin seeds.  Blend in a blender until creamy.

Step 2: Now, stop the blender.  Add raw pine nuts, a few cloves of lightly roasted garlic, and a bunch of fresh basil. Blend only lightly so that you leave the sauce a little chunky. Add salt to taste. I only added a tiny bit of salt.

Viola! Super yummy!

You're welcome. ;)
