Meatless Monday - Orach With Pesto Cream

Orach is a red leaf veggie that is very similar to spinach. I've never seen it at the grocery store but it can readily be found at local farmers markets. This evening I took a bunch of orach and lightly sauteed it. At the last moment I added some vegan pesto and soy cream and tossed it around. It couldn't have been easier but boy was it delicious! I think it would be wonderful served on top of gnochi (Italian potato dumplings), and I think they might turn a pretty shade of pink.
