Pea and Mint Pesto

This pea and mint pesto is the epitome of summer – light, fresh, and healthy. It’s a nice change from regular pesto, and this one is nut free! One of my best friends is allergic to nuts, so maybe she will try this one.

What You’ll Need

  • 1 cup basil leaves
  • 1 cup mint leaves
  • 1 cup frozen (or fresh) peas thawed
  • 1/4 cup olive oil
  • A little salt and pepper
  • Directions
    Put all ingredients in a blender, and blend until combined. The pesto will be on the thick side (I like it this way). You can always add more olive oil to thin it out. Serve on pasta, sandwiches, or however you like it.

    I made a sandwich with my pesto, avocado, and tomato on whole wheat bread.

      Great idea for the fresh peas and basil that’s coming along now.
