Hi you !
Recently I’ve been loving red pesto. It’s so good with everything, especially on toasted bread. So I decided to try my own version of pesto. I looked at some recipes online and in the amazing Heilsuréttir Hagkaupa , that’s a cookbook that Solla Eiríks wrote. She is a vegetarian/vegan/raw vegan chef. She is amazing. You can check her out at www.rawsolla.com . So this is my version of her amazing sun dried tomato pesto.
This is so easy, and quick that you will laugh when it’s ready.
First thing I did was to soak my sun dried tomatoes because mine where dried in a bag.
Meanwhile I roasted some almonds on a dry skillet.
When my tomatoes where soft I started to fill my blending bowl with goodness.
Then pour olive oil over everything and mix. When your satisfied with the texture it’s ready.
voila ! 10 minutes in making. Pesto to live for as Solla would say 🙂
This recipe is for a lot of pesto if you are alone eating it, so I store my pesto in old pesto jars that I keep when I’ve finished up the pesto.
Recipe is about 350-400 ml. Depends on how thick you want it.
Sun dried tomatoes, 100 gr
Garlic, 1-2 clove
Fresh Basil, hand full
Balsamic vinegar, 1 tsp
Agave , 1 tsp
Extra Virgin Olive Oil, about 3/4 cup or 2 dl
Salt, 1 tsp
Almonds, about 100 gr roasted
Put everything in a blender or a food processor. I used a hand blender and it worked fine.
Hope you try it, enjoy !
Until next time
