Red pesto

I lived a few years in Provence , and there if you mention pesto it has to be basil pesto , honestly i’ve never heard of red pesto until i came to Ireland and started to  browse online and in food magazine. At work we recently got red pesto for a new fish dish and i really like it especially with chicken , fish and pasta. This version is using sun-dried tomato but i heard of a version using roasted bell peppers , i will definitely try it in a future post .

Red pestoRecipe:

*1 cup of drained sun-dried tomatoes ( do not throw the oil as it is prefect for marinating meat or fish)

*3 garlic cloves

*1 tbsp of chopped fresh thyme

*2 tbsp of olive oil


1.In a food processor , blend all the ingredients until smooth , season with salt and pepper .

2.The pesto can be stored in the fridge for a few days .

Bon appetit
