Sun-dried Red Pesto

Pesto has always been one of my favourite condiments. The original form consisting mainly of basil, garlic and olive oil is what first got me hooked; eating it in the most peculiar of ways has caused many to question me before! I love substituting it for things like butter and mayonnaise as I feel it enhances the flavours of whatever you have it with.

I’ve never tried a differing brand of pesto that has tasted the same before, which is all down to the different ratio of each ingredient used. Sun-dried tomatoes are one of my favourite ways to eat tomato, which are a beautiful addition to red pesto. I threw this together myself, and after a few times, I was highly satisfied with the flavour. Chia seeds are easily snuck into this recipe as well for a nice omega-3 and protein kick. This recipe is so versatile, whether you’re in the mood for spreading it onto a roll, mixing it into your pasta, or having it with some crackers and wine.
