There’s nothing we all love more than a speedy dinner. The last thing you want to do when you get home from work is prepare a meal with lots of ingredients that takes a long time time to cook. Whip up this Brown rice pasta with broccoli, pesto, toasted almonds and peas for the ultimate speedy dinner which packs in the flavour. When I’m in a hurry I’ll use shop bought pesto but I do find that if you have the time it’s best to make your own. Try this dairy free cashew pesto, and keep it in your fridge as a dip with veg, spread on toast, or mix through your scrambled eggs!
