Fresh Mint & Basil Pesto

July 1, 2019
Fresh Basil Mint Pesto

This pesto was so good, I might like it even better than traditional pesto.  Is that sacrilegious to say?

The flavors are super fresh & vibrant.  Besides that it’s vegan & totally clean.

You can use this as a base for a pasta salad, a fresh vegetable salad, to add as a topping to chicken or fish, or as a condiment for a sandwich.

You pick how you want to use it but know that this is enough for two full meals so plan accordingly!


1 Cup Fresh Mint Leaves

1 Cup Fresh Basil leaves

2 Cloves Garlic

1 Green Onion

1/4 Cup Walnuts

Lemon, zested & juiced

5 Tablespoons Olive Oil

1/4 teaspoon Kosher Salt

1/4 teaspoon Aleppo pepper (optional)

This is so simple you don’t even need directions but I will give them to you anyways…..

  1.  Pop everything in a food processor & blend.  If it’s a bit too thick you can add some more olive oil.
  2. Serve over pasta, a vegetable salad, cooked fish or chicken.
  3. Enjoy!
