Keep it Simple


Classic Pesto

Compelled to Cook

Classic Pesto is just that, a classic. It’s hard to mess with because it’s great just as it is. Simple everyday ingredients that become a vibrant, garlicky and herbaceous sauce with just a few pulses in the food processor.

No Food Processor, No Problem


Pesto Sauce from Scratch

Mi Terruño Food

Making pesto in a mortar and pestle creates a creamy luxurious pesto compared to a chunkier kind when making it from a food processor. Either way, it's guaranteed to be delicious.

Spring has Sprung


Spring Pesto Roasted Tomatoes

Garlic & Zest

A simple, delicious, vegan side dish ready in 30 minutes.

What's Up, Doc?


Roasted Carrots with Carrot Top Pesto

Broccoli Walnut Pesto Pasta

Produce on Parade

This Broccoli Walnut Pesto is a fabulously creamy-tasting vegan pasta served traditionally with green beans and potato.

Burgers for Breakfast


Pesto Breakfast Burger

Fork vs Spoon

Who said burgers were for dinner? When you pile a toasted English muffin with bacon and a delicate fried egg, it's just begging to be eaten for breakfast (or lunch or dinner!). Add the pesto sauce and it's unstoppable.

Summer Lovin'


Goat Cheese Pesto and Roasted Tomato Crostini

Curious Fig

Grilled bread is one of the best things ever! It's like toast, but better because it gets a nice smoky flavor from the grill. Top the crunchy bread with creamy goat cheese, lemony basil pesto, and fresh tomatoes, and it is the perfect balance of summer flavors and textures.

Raw Recipe


Carrot and Zucchini Ribbons and Cilantro Pepita Pesto

The Simple Veganista

A fresh, nourishing, and delicious raw recipe with vegetable ribbons and easy cilantro pepita pesto!

Bowl Me Over


Pesto Quinoa Bowl with Avocado


The combination of an ancient grain and the hottest trend makes for a delicious meal for you and your family. This beautiful and tasty recipe has only seven ingredients, is easy to make, and features creamy avocado, fresh spinach, sweet cherry tomatoes, and quinoa seasoned with zesty pesto.

Party Platter


Toscano, Heirloom Tomato and Pesto Bruschetta

Carnivore Club

Toscano, a traditional Italian salami, is paired with heirloom tomatoes and a chunky arugula basil pesto to create the most delicious bruschetta. Another great addition to your smörgåsbord, and a wonderful use for this delicious charcuterie.

Chicken Classic


Stuffed Chicken Breast with Lemon-Artichoke Pesto


This is a super easy way to feel like a big-shot in the kitchen. Chicken is a lean protein, so it satisfies without packing on the pounds. The walnuts provide healthy fat and tons of nutty taste, and combined with the Parmesan...voila!
