This beet pesto one of the most gorgeous recipes I have ever made. And one of the most delicious I have ever eaten.

This was inspired by the recipe in my book which makes 1 serving and we tweaked the quantities so that it serves more. This is a delicious recipe to add onto pasta, on pizza or use as a dip with crackers and veggies of sorts.

One of my go-to recipes that we make over and over again. And it stays well in the freezer too!

I cannot wait to hear what you think of this!! Don’t forget to tag me on Instagram and Tiktok if you try it.

What ingredients you need to make Beet Pesto:

  • Walnuts – or use a cashew or any nut you’d like. The walnuts are my favorite because they are creamier and add neutral flavor.
  • Lemon – this is a must to balance out the beet flavor here.
  • Extra virgin olive oil – I prefer using evoo but you could use avocado oil if you prefer.
  • Basil and mint leaves – been using so many more now that we have them in our garden!
  • Steamed beets – remove skin before using
  • Parmesan cheese – You could omit if you don’t do dairy and add nutritional yeast or even a vegan parm if you want
  • Garlic cloves – fresh garlic cloves here are great

How to make the easiest Beet Pesto:

  1. Add ingredients to blender and food processor and blend until smooth and creamy (if too thick, add more water!)
  2. Serve with your go-to pasta, on top of pizza, as a dip, anything!
