We are in the middle of the most rewarding weeks of the year, garden-wise. Every single meal we eat these days contains something we grew in our little backyard victory garden. I'd like to share a couple of my very own fresh garden recipes this week. I love pesto, but unfortunately our basil hasn't flourished this year. Our oregano has though, so oregano pesto it is!
Put all ingredients except oil, salt & pepper into a food processor. Pulse for a few seconds until finely chopped. Then with processor running slowly stream in the olive oil.
Once smooth and combined, turn off processor and pour into a bowl. Add salt and pepper to taste.
Oregano is perennial and it has started taking over our herb garden, so I love recipes like this where you can use a lot at once. I have made this using pecans and almonds and honestly like this pesto with oregano as much as any basil pesto. I hope if you have a garden you are enjoying the bounty of the season. Doesn't it feel great to grow things you can eat? I guess that's why they call it a victory garden.
Thanks for reading!
