You can switch up this colorful dish to suit you and your kids’ specific needs. Leave out the Greek yogurt for a dairy-free pesto and try So Delicious Almond Milk instead; the cashews will also lend a naturally creamy taste and texture. Try arugula instead of baby spinach, or yellow and red bell peppers for orange peppers.
