Today on the blog I’ll be keeping it short and sweet but with lots of yummy goodness in the form of three awesome condiments that will keep us all going through this late summer season. First up is this green pea pesto which is perfect with pesto but also great in potato salad which I’ll be showing you next week so stay tuned for that!
I’ve made this pesto without oil which maybe stretches the idea of a pesto but at the moment I’m trying to reduce my use of oil in my cooking. But don’t worry it’s still rich and delicious as the green peas offer a sweet and creamy texture and I’ve also added avocado to the mix to up that creaminess.
I wish you all a lovely weekend with lots of yummy food. I hope you’ll give this recipe a go and please check out my two other condiments going up here on the blog today which are a Creamy Cashew Dressing w. Oregano and Thyme as well as a Herbed Garlic Butter perfect for enjoying with grilled corn. Enjoy! x
