Pesto is among the best things on earth, if you ask me. An unassuming green paste that instantly transforms whatever you put it on into savory heaven! Which is why I had to create this oil-free basil and carrot top pesto recipe. Toss out the cheese, toss in some nutritional yeast and roasted garlic, and you’ve got an bright, herby DASH-friendly pesto that will treat your taste buds right.
Compote–a dish of stewed fruit–is great with things like low-fat yogurt, pancakes, waffles, etc. This version of fruit compote, is 100% fruit and eschews the traditional sugar syrup. It’s exceedingly easy, and I have formulated the recipe to use frozen fruit, since it’s so convenient to keep on hand, but you could certainly use fresh fruit too!
