Organic Veggie or Salmon Pinwheel Appetizer Recipe!

Cooking organically doesn’t have to mean using hard-to-find ingredients or flavor-less recipes.

Here is one of our favorite fall appetizers to try on a relaxing Saturday afternoon!

Italian Veggie Pinwheels (recipe courtesy of Cascadian Farm) This tasty no-cook appetizer makes 15-30 veggie pinwheels. Prep time varies if you use an already prepared pesto blend or if you make your own.

Ingredients:

  • 3-6 tablespoons of prepared basil pesto (To make your own prepared basil pesto – you will need 2 cups of fresh basil leaves, 1/2 cup fresh grated Parmesan or Romano cheese, 1/2 cup extra virgin olive oil, 1/3 cup pine nuts or walnuts, 3 minced garlic cloves, salt & pepper to taste – mix basil leaves & nuts in food processor and pulse several times – add garlic & cheese and pulse again. Scrape food processor with a spatula then slowly add olive oil while pulsing food processor. Scrape side as needed. Add salt and pepper to taste.)
  • 3-6 tablespoons sour cream
  • 3 flour tortillas (8-10 inch)
  • 1 bag frozen organic vegetable blend (thawed/drained) or fresh, cooked organic veggies
