  • If you want a little more “fire” in the pesto add a chili or chili flakes. Red goes great, unsurprisingly ;)


  • Throw all the ingredients into a food processor or use a bowl and hand blender. If you don’t have any of those tools try to cut all the ingredients into very small pieces and try to mix and mash them together using a fork or heavy rolling pin.
  • Just pour the mixture into the jar and tadaaaaaa! You have your own little jar of lovely red pesto.
  • Use it as pizza base, in a wrap, with pasta/zoodles or try in combination with our fantastic vegetarian quesadillas :D



Try this red pesto with these kick-ass quesadillas or in our delicious red pesto pasta!
