15 MINUTE PESTO BAKED SALMON

These salmon fillets are super easy and full of flavour. I’ve used a 3 herb pesto as it’s my current favourite but you could use whatever your favourite is. They also go perfectly with that potato salad I posted earlier in the week!

GREEN CHICKEN PESTO SALAD BOWL

I love a salad bowl. Clearly. And at this time of the year a grilled chicken salad is what I feel like eating most of the time. This is also delicious with a boiled egg or some haloumi (seared in a non stick pan) instead of the chicken if you’re into a more vegetarian vibe.

Just maybe.

KALE AND BASIL SUNFLOWER SEED PESTO

pesto

This guy packs a lot of punch, both in nutrients and in flavour. It is fantastic added to pasta, pizzas, sandwiches, or with seafood or meat. It’s also good just with some avocado on toast or rice crackers. Seriously yum. I suggest you use a mortar and pestle for the sunflower seeds (or everything if you have a big one) as I find you end up with a better texture overall but I guess it depends on your food processor!
