Beet pesto recipe

I’m a huge pesto fan and I usually have a batch of homemade pesto in my fridge. I think it’s so much richer in flavors than the store bought ones, and that means I can reduce the portion size to accomplish a rich taste. After all – there’s a whole lot of oil in there.

I usually stick to the traditional version with basil, pinenuts, garlic, lemon and oil, but sometimes I like to mix it up. This beet pesto is perfect for that, and I’m a hu(g)e fan of the bright pink color. I’ve used it on everything from pizza to salads.
