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! 

Peanut butter and Chili Wok

The feeling when you are going to make lunch and you just take what you can find in the fridge and freezer and it ends up being like the tastiest dish you have ever eaten! That’s what happened to me right now. I made a peanut butter and chili wok and just used what I had at home.

Ingredients:

sesame-seeds

sliced turkey

fitness noodles (from fitnessguru.com)

mixed wok vegetables (broccoli, chestnuts, carrots, bamboo sprouts, corn)

chopped red onion

chopped garlic

soy sauce

coconut oil

peanut butter (with chili flavor) -found this in the grocery store the other day, delicious!

Do this: Start by roasting the sesame-seeds in a pan, take them off and put on a plate when they got a little color. Add coconut oil to the heated pan and add the mixed wok vegetables and the garlic, red onion, and the sliced turkey. Let it get some color for a few minutes, add some black pepper if you’d like. Then add the fitness noodles together with some soy sauce and about 2 tbs of the peanut butter. Let it get warm and add the sesame-seeds. Then it’s ready to serve! SO DELICIOUS!
