Pea and mint Pesto
In the past I ran my own market stall making pesto (8 varieties) from beetroot to the basic basil. Unfortunately due to ever increasing fees and laws, combined with lack of time I decided to finish up. I was doing this before there where so many varieties on the supermarket shelves, I loved it and so did my customers, so much so that I got offered to bottle the product by a company but turned it down. Anyway here is the recipe for the pea and mint pesto.
15g Shallots425ml Oil
So you will need a food processor for this. This is one of my original pesto recipes and to my knowledge nobody else produces this. It is so refreshing and is a wonderful dip or alternative accompaniment to lamb. At my previous job we used to serve this with a lamb shank spring roll! Yum!
There are also recipes for beetroot and dill pesto, lemon and saffron pesto, sunblushed tomato pesto (taste like bolognaise), capsicum pesto and basil pesto.
