I found this recipe very green indeed!. In fact, it was a bit too green for me and I don’t think I’ll be cooking this again. The basil pesto coloured everything. It wouldn’t have mattered if I’d actually liked it, but I didn’t.

Veganuary 2019: Gousto Simple One-Pot Puttanesca

This wasn’t one of my more successful Gousto menu choices. I had to substitute a soya cheese for the supplied cheese, but I was aware that I would need to do this when I put in my order.

The problem with this was twofold: the tomato element was too acidic; and I discovered that I just don’t like capers!

I added Alpro Soya Single Cream Alternative to the second portion in an attempt to tone down the acidity of the tomatoes, but it did nothing about the caper problem.

This is definitely not one that I will be having again.

This was an excellent meal and I wouldn’t change a thing. In fact, I’ve gathered all of the ingredients together so that I can make this for myself without having to wait for it to appear on the Gousto menu again.
