Spring Onion Pesto


Again I had stuff in the fridge that needed to be used. I abhor throwing food away so will always find a way of turning it into something edible, before it turns to something inedible.

This time it was spring onion. I had loads, so I made double this quantity.

This is a great, quick and easy option for taking an offering to a casual do like a BBQ. Just grab some crackers on the way and you are done.

Pesto is so versatile. It is a great dip, can be used as a pasta sauce, a spread on salad sandwiches, the list goes on. So get into pesto making!


2 cups of spring onion, washed well and roughly chopped

1 and 1/2 cups of pine nuts

salt/pepper to taste

2 cloves of fresh garlic, peeled and minced

½ cup of olive oil

# From memory I threw a few stray walnuts on here too and I also added some red chilli for a bit more of a bite to the recipe.


Blend all ingredients


Makes circa 2 cups of dip

Takes about 10 minutes

Seems to freeze well
