Homemade Basil Chili Pesto  

I don’t post very many recipes for “real dishes” here, mostly breakfast alternatives and what I bake. I felt like this is something I need to share with you. My favorite overall recipe. I would also classify it as fast food (healthy fast food), because it’s so easy and quick to make. 

Homemade Basil Chili Pesto (4 portions)

  • 2.5 jars fresh basil
  • 2 dl Parmesan cheese
  • 2 dl roasted pine nuts 
  • 2.5 dl olive oil
  • 2 garlic cloves (pressed)
  • A sprinkle of chili flakes (or a small piece of fresh chili of you have at home)
  • A sprinkle of Herb salt 
  • A sprinkle of Black pepper 

-> Just put everything in a mixer or food processor and blend until smooth and no chunks. If it’s too thick add more olive oil. Taste of you need more spices, Basil or garlic. 

There are of course a million ways to eat the Pesto. I add it to almost anything. But the first recipe with it this weekend me and my friend made it raw and simple! 

  • Zucchini noodles
  • Shrimp
  • Roasted walnuts 
  • Sugarpeas
  • Cocktail tomatoes 

Just mix it all on your plate and ENJOY!

When I just have a little as left overs I love to add the Pesto to an omelet with eggs, spinach and red onion. With some broccoli and avocado on the side. Delicious!  
The Pesto is of course free from gluten and added sugar!
