Basically, we believe that any vegetable – or root vegetable, can become a creamy and delicious pesto. With any complimenting nut and a tasty helping of cheese, pesto with any vegetable can easily be achieved. If you don’t believe us, you will have to try this pesto.

When we feel like our bodies need a detox from fattening or processed foods, Dan and I always turn to making veggie filled dishes. Since Dan is not a huge fan of veggies, I often hide vegetables in our main dishes. He will obviously eat vegetables, but loves it when they are disguised as something more tasty. Making beets into a flavorful sauce to spread all over his favorite carb, was one easy way to wow him. If you have a husband (or kids) just like Dan, then I am sure that they will also be blown away by this pesto. As a plus, this vibrant and beautiful pink hue will get anyone excited to dig in.
