34 Nonconformist Pestos

Yeah, so you can pretty much make a pesto out of anything.

Pestos are delicious, and surprisingly easy to make.

You only really need 5 basic ingredients:

1. Some type of herb or vegetable

2. Nuts

3. Cheese

4. Oil

5. Flavor enhancers like garlic, salt and pepper, etc.

Pesto is traditionally made with basil, pine nuts, olive oil, parmesan, garlic and lemon.

But you can basically make a pesto using almost any herb or vegetables, by combining it with nuts and oil.

The possibilities are endless, but here are a few of my favorites...


2. Or go off the deep end with this scallion, bok choy, asiago, pumpkin seed, and pecan pesto.

You only use the green parts of the scallions in this pesto recipe, so sear the bottoms and serve them on top of your pesto coated pasta.
