Try Tri-Pesto Plate

Tri-Pesto Plate, originally uploaded by Vegan Year.

I made 3 types of pesto yesterday, having scored a huge bunch of basil and needing to use it up, and made a Try-Pesto Plate with them for dinner!
On the Broccoli we have Lemon Walnut Spinach Pesto, and on the tofu (which I coated in a seasoned cornstarch / cornmeal mix and fried) Arugula Pecan Pesto, and a Basil Tapenade (or Tapenade Pesto if you'd prefer!). Served with plain brown rice.
H's favourite was the Arugula Pecan Pesto, and I preferred the Tapenade Pesto, though thought the brightness of the lemon in the Lemon Walnut Pesto went really well with the broccoli.
Now, I'm going to set up a survey thing to the side of this post, and you can vote for which recipe of the three you want. (or if you'd prefer you can leave a comment). I'll post the winning recipe next weekend!
