food painting for the vegetarian cookbook by Fiona Morgan
Easy. Versatile. Long life. Moreish.


Food painting artwork

30 x 30cm oil on canvas. A shiny cartoon pesto monster on a wonderfully textured shiny green hued background, running off with multiple jars of pesto goodness. Inspired by too many cartoons as a kid.

By the way, all the food painting artwork is available to own in the Official Art Store.


The meatless meals recipe

Number one besto pesto. Be warned it tends to attract pesto monsters. Or make monsters of those who didn't even know they had monstrous tendencies. They even try to run off with your jars of pesto. Like the one pictured. Let's name this one Richie.

3/4 cup minced basil (about 30g)
3 cloves garlic (minced)
1/2 cup parmesan cheese (57g)
1/4 cup crushed nuts (pine nuts, almond or walnut)
1/3 - 1/2 cup olive oil

Thoroughly mix everything together in the order given.
Put in a clean lidded container, a glass jar is ideal, and keep in the fridge. Some like their pesto fresh but I like to let the flavour develop over a couple of days before use if possible. Makes a great gift or husband catcher.

Makes 3/4 cup of pesto and keeps for ages.
