Winter Greens Pesto Posted on June 14, 2017

Traditionally, Basil makes up the bulk of any pesto recipe but when the winter months roll around and basil is no longer found in the herb garden, some of us are left scratching our heads.

To overcome this problem, I started playing with loads of winter greens. The good news? It turns out you can make pesto out of almost any green leafy vegetable. Feel free to play around with your leafy favourites (I love baby spinach and kale) and enjoy all that winter goodness mother nature intended.
