I love a good pesto. There is something so comforting about the spicy garlic, the salty parmesan and the delicious olive oil. Today, our friend Ashlee, from The Crunchy Moose, is sharing her amazing recipe for Spicy Radish Green Pesto! It is so delicious! And it is perfect for this time of the year, when fresh basil is difficult to find.
Spicy radish greens give this pesto a well-deserved punch in the pine nuts! Don't get me wrong, I love a classic pesto, but a spicy pesto with a bite is even better!
- Put everything in your food processor or blender.
- Blend until smooth.
- That's it! You made pesto!
- Serve on cooked pasta, spread on sandwiches, top on a salad, use as pizza sauce, the possibilities are endless! I served this with pasta and homemade meatballs. Do not heat the pesto. Just stir the room temperature pesto in with the hot pasta. Store leftover pesto in the fridge or freeze (pesto freezes excellently!).
Hello everyone! I'm Ashlee from The Crunchy Moose, a blog about naturally living. I am a stay at home mom who is passionate about whole food and the local environment. I started my natural journey several years ago after 3 years of back surgeries. Making some simple changes in my life stopped the seemingly endless back surgery cycle immediately and I'm now stronger and healthier than the doctors said was possible. I recently sold my retail store to spend time with my growing family. My son was adopted last year and is now 15 months old. I am also a volunteer at a local, organic farm. I grew up in the mountains of North Carolina and now live with my husband & son in the suburbs of Dallas.
