Super simple and super versatile, this basil pesto dip is great to have on hand. Sure, it’s a dip, but what else can you do with it? We 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. It was featured in Episode 103 of the podcast, Thermomix Basil Recipes.
