I used to buy red pesto at the supermarket until I found out that it’s actually super easy to make your own red pesto. And it tastes way better than store-bought pesto too!!! When you make a batch, make sure to store it in the fridge! It will keep for about 1 1/2 week. The red pesto is great on bread or in other recipes, such as pasta dishes.
a small bunch of basil leaves
40 gram Parmesan cheese
30 gram pine nuts
1 or 2 garlic cloves
150 grams sundried tomatoes
a dash of extra virgine olive oil
a splash of balsamic vinegar
Put all the ingredients into a food processor or blender and blend until everything is pureed.
If you have more time available, you can also use a mortar and pestle and some good old-fashioned elbow grease 🙂
Add some more olive oil if the pesto seems to dry for your taste.
