I don’t think I know anybody who doesn’t like pesto!
Pesto is a great item to have in the fridge as it will turn simple ingredients into a great meal in seconds. Stir some pesto through pasta, roast vegetables or beans like in my Pesto Butterbeans with Kale, Sundried Tomatoes and Feta recipe.
I love making my own pesto as it is incredibly easy and you can experiment with lots of different flavours. Pesto is traditionally made with pine nuts, basil, oil and parmesan. However, I tend to use roasted nuts or seeds with any herb I have on hand.
Here are some of my favourite pesto recipes:
Almond & Basil Pesto – this pesto works great with chicken, vegetable or regular spaghetti and also with my Pesto Butterbean dish.
Pumpkin Seed & Coriander Pesto – drizzle this pesto over roasted root vegetables or swirl through a quiche, frittata or omelette for some serious flavour.
