Searching for recipies that include basil:
There are two sure bets with summer: fresh tomatoes and fresh basil and that yells CAPRESE SALAD! If you don't do dairy, the tofu adds the perfect consistency. The acids of the tomato, sweetness of the balsamic and earthiness of the fresh basil make this summertime staple a continual favorite.

I love this hearty, yet light stew that introduces summer's harvest! The squash pulls it all together, bringing the soup to a stew-like consistency and the lemon at the end brightens it all up. I hope you like it as much as I do!  

This thick, chunky and oh, so creamy tomato soup has a lot of little secrets, but one of them is the use of San Marzano tomatoes. Italy's little gem is a must for that great flavor here.

Using the name 'pesto' liberally, this kale and basil spread does have hints of the popular dish, just without the oil and dairy. But, boy, will you still loooove it!

This makes a great Thanksgiving appetizer when people come flooding into your home and are ready to eat! Set this in the living room to keep them out of the kitchen so that you can finish up. This is also a winner for the kiddos, what little one doesn't like finger food?

There is nothing more satisfying than eating a big ol' plate of manicotti, and never feeling that "pasta" bloat. The fresh basil, beautifully sweet San Marzano tomatoes and creamy bechamel sauce makes this dinner party worthy. You'll win anyone over with this dish.

I'm always playing with pesto (I think there are like 4 on my website!), I think it's because I always have an over abundance of basil and an obsession with condiments. This Garden Fresh Pesto is really so beautiful. Sure, the nutritional value is boosted by adding in the walnuts, but the lack of oi...

No way baby, this is NOT last night's dinner! This is your new breakfast: Breakfast Pizza. This plant-based, oil-free, guilt-free pizza does not require a hangover needed to nosh a pie in the a.m. You're starting off the day right with a kale and basil pesto, topped with creamy and cheesy organic t...

Who says pesto has to be made with only pine nuts?  And, does it really have to include cheese?   Um, no.   Team those little seeds (yes, pine nuts are seeds) with an omega-3 packed nut, whirl with a few other players and presto!  You, my friend, have Pecan Pesto!
