Spring Rolls and Vegan Pesto

 The Chefs: Elizabeth and Valencia Whole Foods

The Menu: Two ready-made dishes, fresh from the cold case. Spring rolls with carrots, romaine, cucumbers, avocado, and a ridiculously delicious dipping sauce, plus a side of Savvy Savories pesto pasta, topped with some of the company's Italian sausage.

The Goods: Sometimes you want to eat delicious things but a) don't have the time to whip something up yourself, b) need to also sneak in a quick run at lunch, in addition to procuring and devouring said delicious thing, and c) happen to have a really great grocery store right around the corner from your office. All three of these qualifications were true for me today, and thankfully Valencia Whole Foods totally came through. Do pesto and spring rolls usually go together? Maybe not, but I tell you what—they should! You know what else should go together? You and me! I'm thrilled to be going on VegNews Vegan Yoga Retreat to Mexico, and you could be too!
