Walnut Pesto

Makes enough for a good snack or drizzle on your soup Prep Time 10 minutes   Rated:

Not your average pesto...(I don't do average!) This recipe was originally created for a drizzle on a soup. The Roasted Parsnip and Jerusalem Artichoke soup to be precise...but it so good with so many other things, it’s hard to assign it to just one job. So don’t!! Get on it and start slathering it all over everything! Add it to soup, but also use as a dip, a pizza topping, a drizzle over a fresh salad. Let your inner chef run wild.
