Red pesto – #FeedMeFridays

Blender Pesto Blended Pesto

A simple and delicious twist on the traditional pesto recipe. For anyone that loves tomatoes as much as I do this recipe is packed with them and can be used in so many different ways.

Ingredients:

  • 15 cherry tomatoes
  • 150g sun-dried tomatoes
  • 50g fresh basil
  • 5 tablespoons of olive oil
  • 1 1/2 tablespoons of apple cider vinegar
  • 1 1/2 tablespoon of tomato puree
  • 1 tablespoon of dried mixed herbs
  • 30g grated parmesan

As simple as throw them all in a blender and whizz up until a blended, nice consistency

Pesto chicken and vegetables

Pesto chicken

This is one of my favourite pesto dishes and so so flexible! This can be put into pasta, you can have it with quinoa, just as is with some delicious sweet potato fries. Just so many options!! Also, you can change the ingredients based on what's in your cupboard or fridge, the pesto is the best part.

Ingredients:
4 boneless chicken thighs
A handful of sweet cherry tomatoes sliced in half
A handful of frozen mushrooms
A handful of frozen broccoli broken up
1 portion of the amazing homemade green pesto
A mug of water

Super easy, all you do is throw it all in an oven tray and let it roast away for about 45 mins. Make sure all the broccoli is covered with liquid or you'll get crispy bits! Then either mix it with quinoa, pasta or however else you want it. I normally just have it with a flatbread and eat it like a chunky soup!

Enjoy
