Hey guys, happy beautiful weekend! 🌞🌻 how are you? I love Pesto, do you?

There are hundreds of recipes of Pesto, it`s born in northern Italy around the 16th Century in the beautiful region Liguria, Genoa, Liguria is the most famous basil growing region, and the Pesto Genoese is the most known pesto around the world, made with basil leaves, virgin olive oil, salt, pine nuts, garlic and the mix of grated cheeses: pecorino romano and parmesan. It has been adapted for regions into Italy, as well as around the world.

According to your preferences to make, feel free to add any herb, any veggies lemon, orange juice, vinegar, capers, olives, any condiment, nut, and it does not matter if it`s not green, because there are some with tomatoes, pepper, even adding pieces of fish.







There is nothing like a fresh pesto, it`s never the same the other day, the fusion and infusion of the fresh leaves with the oil and vice verse, plus the roasted nuts it`s awesome earthy and transmits to any food that unmistakable taste. It`s used almost in anything, mixed with pasta, into ñoquis, with fish, seafood, meat, eggs, tossed on veggies, potatoes, sweet potatoes, etc.

This recipe it`s only for 2 servings, of course, you can increase the recipe as many times as you need it.

I have a friend that has a large quarry of mint in the yard, I am envious of not being able to have it, as well as can`t have my own piece of the land to grow not only mint but parsley, coriander, basil, micro-greens, etc., but I live in an apartment. 😒 Anyway, when I go to her house I always go to my house with a bunch of them.

I love the combination of mint with any fish or seafood also I love parsley, above cilantro. I am trying to let the cheese out, although I love it, so this recipe is with nutritional yeast instead of cheese, feel free to add it if you do it, don`t put the salt until the last minute because the parmesan cheese it`s salty.

Alright, this is my simple recipe to make. Let`s do it!
