Home-made pesto

Bowl-Of-Pesto

Pesto is one of the easiest, freshest and most nutritious sauces to make; I may be a little biased having married an Italian 🙂 It is very versatile and you can enjoy it with all types of pasta, with potatoes, mix it through vegetables or simply on a nice piece of bruschetta. This recipe is packed with iron, vitamin C, good fats and proteins that are essential for recovery from sports performance.

 – large handful of spinach

 – large handful of rocket

 – large handful of basil

 – zest of one lemon

 – 70ml extra virgin olive oil

 – 50g parmesan cheese

 – large pinch of sea salt and black pepper

What to do

Pop all the ingredients into the NutriBullet and whizz until smooth

I hope you enjoy this recipe
