Picnics and vegan pesto pasta salads

Picnics are my jam! I have a park chilling with friends scheduled every Sunday during the summer months to listen to tam-tams.

Being the “always hungry” friend, I always make sure to bring myself a hearty lunch and plenty of snacks since these chillings often last until night-time.

This is where this protein-packed vegan pesto pasta salad comes into play. It is not only delicious but also suuuuuuper easy to make and very filling.

I can also guarantee you that there are never leftovers when I come back from theses summer chillings since my friends take care of any stray forkfuls left behind.

I love using the soyganic smoked tofu for this recipe since it tastes incredible, but regular or marinated tofu can also work in a pinch.

Try these other summer recipes!

Tips and tricks for acing your pesto pasta salad

Tip #1

Feed 2 birds with one scone! Cook your frozen vegetables straight in the boiling water for your pasta. 

Start by cooking your pasta as you normally would. One minute before the pasta is al dente, add the frozen vegetables to the boiling water. Wait until the water starts boiling again and try out one of the pasta to evaluate if it is cooked enough.

Tip #2

Nobody wants mushy overcooked pasta for pasta salad ( or for any dish really). 

Cooldown quickly your pasta and vegetables by running it under cold water right after transferring it into a colander to drain.

The cold water from your tap will do a better job at cooling down your carb goodness than draining your pasta and sticking it in the fridge. Your pasta is also going to be at a smaller risk of sticking together into a big loaf.

You can estimate the potency of your edibles by using my THC calculator.

Info Infusion

Sensitivity to changes in oil: no

Type of oil or infusion:  cannabis-infused vegetable oil

Dosing method: Individual

Taste: light-medium

This is my personal perception when made at a potency of around 20mg of THC per portion.

Sober version: To make this recipe cannabis free, simply remove the oil. There is no need to replace it with regular oil.

Always clearly label your edibles, keep them out of reach of children and pets, and don’t eat more than you can handle.
