Quick Herb Pesto

16 Sep

Fresh pesto can enliven pizza, pasta, veggies and meat and seafood. We fell in love with pizza with pesto. I experimented with different herbs and nuts and came up with this recipe. I used the fresh herbs in the tubes on my experiment and it was so quick and easy. We have tried this on home made pizzas and with grilled swordfish. So refreshing. Do not add salt if the nuts have salt.

  • 2 cloves of garlic
  • 2 tbs olive oil
  • 3 tubes of herbs: basil, parsley, and italian blend (each tube is equivalent to 3 bunches of fresh herbs)
  • 1/4 cup toasted soy nuts
  • 1/4 cup pine nuts

Place all ingredients in food processor and and process until smooth. You can refrigerate up to 3 days.
