Parsley Walnut Pesto


We love pesto around here, especially the toddler. Whatever I coat with pesto, Dominik devours. But I usually make pesto with basil, so I wanted to try something different. Parsley makes for a lovely bright and fresh pesto.


Sure enough, Dominik enjoyed this pesto just as much as a basil one. I made extra and have been putting it on all kids of foods because it’s just so tasty!

  1. Blend all ingredients in a food processor or blender until combined and a paste has formed. Add the olive oil a little at a time until it is blended.
  2. Serve on pasta, vegetables, or beans or spread on sandwiches and crackers.
