Make your own Sundried Tomato Pesto


I absolutely love pesto. It's cheesy, garlicy herbiness is just about perfect in all forms of deiliciousness. But I have to admit that recently, it has been sundried tomato pesto that has recently  stolen my heart.



After playing around with the food processor, I can proudly say that I have come up with a homemade sundried tomato pesto that is really quite simple to make. And you can add it to a huge variety of dishes. For example, here are a couple meals I have made recently:


Sundried tomato pesto will brighten up your favourite 'dirty pasta' dish (when you toss lingering vegetables in your fridge with pasta and your favourite source of protein). Delicious and nutritionally balanced!



Or even as a mid-layer in your quiche! Here, I spread some sundried tomato pesto between the crust and the egg filling, adding a tarty deiliciousness. Absolutely divine!

No matter how you choose to dice it, sundried tomato pesto is delicious. And let's be honest with ourselves: if it is homemade, it is always always better.

Sundried Tomato Pesto


Ingredients:

- 1 jar of sundried tomatoes packed in oil (I ended up using dry sundried tomatoes and then soaked them in hot water for 20 minutes and then added an additional 1/4 cup oil to the recipe)
- 1/4 cup fresh basil
- 1/4 cup fresh parsley
- 1 garlic clove, diced
- 1/2 cup grated parmesan cheese
- olive oil, to taste or to achieve the text you prefer
- pepper to taste

Directions:


Toss everything in a food processor and whirl. Taste, adjust seasonings if needed, whirl again. Yum.
