Mushroom Pesto

Comment 1 Standard

I really try to take home-made food to work as often as possible – first and foremost when I have to work the late shift where I only have a 30-minutes lunch break… It tastes better than the take-away stuff from Coop or McDonalds, and it’s also way healthier… And I really love the envious glances of my working mates while eating, haha 😀

This recipe can be done really quickly, I made it this morning and I’ll enjoy it at work today… 🙂

For 2 servings you’ll need:

3 garlic cloves, peeled and chopped
1 small onion, peeled and coarsely chopped
2 spring onions, trimmed and coarsely chopped
50 ml olive oil
250g brown mushrooms, cut in pieces
1 handful of walnuts
1 cup of vegetable broth
3 tbsp dried tomatoes (in oil)
1/2 bunch of smooth parsley

Fry the garlic cloves and the onion with some olive oil in a large frying pan. Add the spring onions and fry briefly. Add the mushrooms and dried tomatoes as well as the vegetable broth and cool until everything is soft (should take about 5 minutes).

Mix parsley and the walnuts, add the pan’s contents and purée everything. Season to taste with some salt.


Tastes great with spaghetti or any other kind of pasta, with some freshly grated parmiggiano, or also as spread on fresh bread… Yummy! 🙂 Don’t forget to decorate with a parsley-leaf… 😉
