Recipe

Who doesn’t love pesto? Honestly I would eat it everyday garlicky, herby, lemony, salty and perfect on almost anything pasta, pizza, vegetables, eggs, bread, potatoes…you get the idea. Oh and not to mention the variety switch up the herbs, add different nuts, add cheese and it all leads to deliciousness and healthy deliciousness if you use a little less oil or try a substitute like yogurt. For this recipe (inspired by Danica’s Daily ), the pesto base is peas, blended with lemon, basil, parmesan cheese, salt, pepper, and a little olive oil. Yum.
