A beautiful photo of my favourite swiss chard pesto.
This is the recipe for pesto made with leftover swiss chard, as opposed to fresh, and is my most regularly made spread that goes wonderfully with a slice of crusty bread.
I seem to always make this the day after we’ve eaten swiss chard for dinner, the night before, and it certainly makes it disappear faster than if I were to just leave it hanging around in the fridge as is!
My Favourite Swiss Chard Pesto
Leftover swiss chard, cooked however
2 cloves garlic
Lemon juice, to taste
1 chunk parmesan cheese
Salt & pepper, to taste
Place all ingredients into a small food processor and blitz until you get the texture you like.
Season with salt & pepper, to taste, and blitz again to encorporate.
Add a bit of lemon juice and extra olive oil to get the right consitency.
Serve generously on tasty bread or use like normal pesto.
