Prepared at home this simple mix packs small and brings a big taste
For big taste on the trail, this Mega Herb Pesto has good value for your money and its weight. Packed with fresh ingredients and low cost-alternatives to traditional pesto this is the perfect flavour punch to throw in your pack for a weekend adventure.
“I like this recipe because it cuts out all of the typical things people are allergic to and it is still delicious,” says Sydney Badger, from Taste + Balance who hosted a food workshop with Power To Be staff to help redefine our camping menus. “It is nut free, dairy free and is packed with flavour.”
Prepped in advance it is a great addition to your camping culinary repertoire due to its small size and big versatility. For weekend hiking trips, pair it with pasta and chickpeas. If you are car camping or boating, consider pairing it with a protein like chicken or tofu and vegetables.
