I love experimenting with new flavor combinations. Green chard is added to the pesto and gives it more of an earthy flavor. The addition of onion, sun-dried tomatoes, and red pepper give makes it tangy and also gives it a flavor punch.
10 basil leaves
1/2 cup of chopped, white onion2 cups of chopped green chard1 clove of grated of garlic
1 tsp. of capers
1 tbsp. sun dried tomatoes in oil
1 1/2 cup of olive oil1/2 cup of freshly grated Parmesan cheesered pepper flakes to taste
In a large blender, add all the ingredients together and mix well. Place the pesto into a small serving bowl or use it with your favorite pasta.
Mix together and serve!
