Mint Pesto

Mint Pesto

I planted 1 mint plant in my garden and it is huge!  So I’ve been looking for ways to use the mint and discovered that you can make pesto with mint so I thought I’d give it a try since everyone around here loves the basil pesto.  I took one bite and thought I was going to puke, it was awful so I went to throw it away but then I thought I should let Bob try it because he’s always game and so he tried and LOVED IT!!  Ha ha!  Maybe it’s like cilantro which I can’t stand and he loves?  The recipe comes from a website called “Donna Hay”.  Maybe you’ll like it and maybe you won’t!  🙂

1/2 cup pine nuts

1/3 cup chopped green onion

1 cup mint leaves

2 teaspoons white wine vinegar

1/2 cup olive oil

1 tablespoon lemon rind

sea salt and cracked black pepper

Place all ingredients in blender or food processor and blend until smooth.
