Pesto rosso – what is that?

Quick Italian lesson: "rosso" means "red" Our pesto rosso's name comes from it's colour and the ingredients used, in this case, dried tomatoes and fruity tomato paste. We add a bit of sunflower oil, cashews, tofu, basil, some garlic and a pinch of salt and our red pesto is ready!  But now back to the question of what pesto actually is! Pesto comes from Italy and is an uncooked, pasty sauce that is usually served with pasta. The first traditional pesto was made as early as 1863 and is thought to be derived from a Roman herb and cheese sauce - or a medieval variation of a standard Roman condiment. The best-known variety is probably "pesto Genovese", which contains pine nuts and Parmesan cheese as well as basil. Green pesto also tastes great and is available in our shop. It is called "pesto verde", because verde = green. The aromatic sauce gets its colour from Italian basil. As the icing on the cake, cheese is usually added to the pesto pasta dishes. For the vegan version, we recommend our delicious nutritional yeast flakes.

Delicious recipes with pesto

Pesto and pasta belong together, just like dates and hazelnuts.  But if you think pesto only works with spaghetti, tortellini, penne and the like, you are mistaken! Have you ever eaten pesto with potatoes, refined your pizza or salad with it? Have you slathered it on your bread or enjoyed it in lasagna or perhaps added it to chicken dishes? If not, it's high time you did! There are countless ways to use the red wonder... We have some ideas for you: Ever heard of a pesto flower? It's a real party hit! First make a dough with flour, yeast, water, some salt and oil, divide it into three parts and roll them all out into a circle. Then spread the first circle with our red (or green) pesto, place the second circle on top, spread the pesto again and place the third circle on top. Now cut the "cake" into equal parts and twist the individual pieces until they form a flower shape. You can find pictures of the whole thing on the internet. Simply delicious!

The flavor of sun-dried tomato, delicious as a dip or spread.

I find this pesto a little on the greasy side, but tasty.

Have nothing to complain about. Would have liked perhaps a more original flavor. Tastes like a normal pesto.

Delicious pesto.

delicious vegan variant

delicious vegan version (soy and cashew instead of parmesan). A point deduction because mainly sunflower oil (has no business there) and only a small part of olive oil is used

It is one of my favorite products so far.

It is one of my favorite products so far. It tastes delicious, I added it to quinoa and lentils and it combines the flavors very well. The consistency is oily. The packaging is ok and it came without defects.
