Raise your hand if you love pesto! ::Raises hand:: I have become obsessed with pesto recently, and if you haven’t tried this delish spread, which is made mostly of basil and garlic, you’re missing out. Pesto is traditionally made with Parmesan, which contains rennet, an enzyme found in the stomachs of baby cows—uh, no, thanks. But with so many awesome vegan cheese options available, pesto can be easily veganized.

Pesto is great on pasta and in virtually any other Italian dish—it’s also perfect for wraps. Check out my recipe for pesto tofu wraps below!

    I am 13 years old and joined the street team June 2015. I am a vegetarian. I have a passion for working to help save animals. I love my family and my 2 pugs, Daisy and Diesel. I plan to work for Peta or Mercy For Animals someday because they helped me become a vegetarian and begin a whole new life of having common sense towards all animals.
