This basic pesto is delicious for dipping, stirred into quinoa, atop pasta, roasted tomatoes or eggplant, on pizza with shaved parmesan, mozzarella or goat cheese. The world is your pesto oyster.
This is my creation of the evening: roasted eggplant, pistachio pesto quinoa and a crispy fried egg. Weird but it worked ohhhh so well.
