Super simple and super versatile… this Thermomix Basil Pesto Dip is great to have on hand.
Sure, it’s a dip… but what else can you do with it?
Well, for starters, you can make disgusting eyeballs to go with a crazy vegetable face, made for the Healthy Halloween issue of the podcast! The picture below actually uses the guacamole dip, but you get the idea!
We also love mixing it with eggs for breakfast. Pesto eggs, better known as green eggs, served with ham is a favourite in The 4 Blades kitchen!
The recipe is super simple and combines some delicious flavours.
