Pumpkin Pesto

This pesto was a spontaneous invention because my mother grew so many pumpkins in her garden! After having a fair share of soup and risotto I needed to come up with something else to make. This pesto is one to remember, so easy to make and really yummy. We had ours with edamame pasta.


YOU WILL NEED:

1 small hokaido pumpkin

1 handful of walnuts

juice of 1/2 a lemon

1 tbsp agave syrup

1 tbsp olive oil

EASY STEPS:

  1. Cut your pumpkin into cubes

  2. Sauté the cubes in a pan with salt and pepper until soft

  3. Roast a handful of walnuts for 5 mins in your oven

  4. Add pumpkin and walnuts to blender along with lemonjuice, olive oil, agave syrup and blend until smooth

  5. ENJOY!
