Pistachio & Mint Pesto

This pesto is simple yet full of flavor. It can be used in many different ways — in cooked pasta, as a sandwich spread, on a grilled panini, or even as a dip. My son loves that it includes his favorite ingredients, pistachio and cheese, and I am happy that it pleases both adults and kids.


  • 2 cups mint
  • 1-2 cloves of garlic
  • 1/2 cup pistachio
  • ½ cup quality cheese (I used grass fed New Zealand Cheddar)
  • 1 to 2 tablespoon lemon
  • 2 tablespoon olive oil
  • salt + fresh ground pepper to taste


1. In a food processor combine all ingredients, except for the oil, and blend.

2. Once all ingredients are mixed well, slowly add the olive oil and blend. You can adjust the consistency of the pesto to your liking by adding more or less of the olive oil.

Use it fresh or store it in the fridge for 4-5 days. Any extra leftovers can be stored in the freezer for use any time later
