No food waste
A pesto is a wonderful way to use so called “food waste” which can be used beautifully as a side dish for plenty of meals. The main ingredients are any kind of greens, seeds, olive oil, lemon, garlic, Parmesan, salt and pepper. After that we can start replacing different parts, like seeds with walnuts, greens with dried tomatoes or beet root. We can skip the Parmesan or use instead ricotta or feta. Variations are endless and finally we will taste a product that is not comparable to any high industrial produced “green glass”.
