Delicious and unique pesto- and vegan too
This pesto has a unique and sophisticated taste to it, and I like it a lot better than the 'artisan' specialist takes on the same idea that I've tasted. I've found a lot of 'aubergine' and especially 'chargrilled aubergine' products taste overly greasy and acrid, a bit like eating something flavoured from stuff burnt into a grill pan. This in contrast has a refreshing, bright quality, a little tangy, not too salty, with a depth of flavour that goes very well with other savoury flavours. I also really appreciate that it's vegan. It's delicious on pasta, particularly with marinated artichokes, and is also tasty on bread with salad as a sandwich. I note the description says it contains chilli- to be honest, I never really noticed it! And I have a stomach that is quite sensitive to chilli, so do not expect a firey heat.
