I am newly addicted to basil, and there are still a lot in the yard! This year was awesome for basil! STill, we are not in a hot climate, so a lot of basil, basically means a few leaves every day, definetly not 2 packed cups full. So, I am looking for good pesto recipes/ideas with basil mixed with other greens.Pesto! Use any herb/nut combination you prefer - love the fresh herbed taste.
I am going to try spinach with a bit of basil leaves and walnuts (the cheapest raw organic option). Does anyone know if non-organic sunflower seeds are Okay? Are sunflowers being sprayed badly? I love sunflower flavor and would love pesto based on that.
Also, I love Parmesan, but I can't get raw Parmesan, just organic. I can get raw organic cheddar. Is cheddar Okay, or just go without cheese?
