EAT: MINT and CORIANDER PESTO

October 16, 2015

 

Why wait for the Basil to be ready, when Mints are in full production in most garden already. Basil Mint is that wonderful combination of mint and strong Basil aromatics, all with the intensity an flavour you wouldn't expect from a mint

.

Pestos are quick and easy to make and can change a meal at a drop of a tablespoon.

 

This recipe takes only fresh, in-season produce (Mid Spring) which is ready now, straight from the garden or Farmers Market. This is a Shop Local, Shop Season recipe !
