Garlic Pesto

This is a condiment that I use in so many things - as a base for soups, beginnings of a stir fry, smothering roast vegetables in, roasting broccoli, topping for a salad or basted on a twisted bread loaf before baking the bread (this is my favourite). The uses are endless.

So many store-bought dips contain all sorts or artificial colours, flavours and preservatives. This dip is made purely from beautiful, wholefood ingredients. Great to have with seedy crackers, veggie sticks or even on a nice piece of toasted sourdough!
