Sun dried tomato pesto



I would like thank my partner to grow herbs and vegetables in a little garden every summer for me, Honestly I'm not good on plants or gadening in general and He knows it, and I know He doesn't like to cook at all, so It's Win Win ;)

By the way , when I see the basil grow so fast, I don't want to waste it, So I made pesto with sundried tomato, basil,shallot,garlic blended with other ingredients put in the jar and store in the fridge to use as condiments ingredient in my cooking, So don't be surprise if I use this Sundried tomato pesto in the next post.




Ingredients :

- 1 cup sun dried tomato
- 2 shallot /chop
- 3 clove garlic
- handful fresh basil
-  2.25 oz / 1/2 cup toasted pine nut
- 1/2 cup grated parmesan cheese
- 1 small can 6 oz tomato paste
- 1/2 cup Exta virgin olive oil
- pinch of salt
- pinch of pepper

Direction :

Toast pine nuts in skillet on low heat temperature until lightly brown
chop shallot and garlic
Put all ingredients except olive oil in small food processor
Drop olive oil while in process until combine and smooth but not too smooth.

This sun dried tomato pesto looks amazing. I love to have fresh veggies and herbs around.. but I hate bugs, worms and lizards. I need someone to do the gardening part. :)
