Sun-dried Tomatoes are rich in Vitamin C, a powerful antioxidant that limits the damage of free radicals and boosts immune function. They also contain high levels of Vitamin A and E!

My Sun-dried Tomatoes are from Prana, a Quebec based company that makes high quality organic products. These Turkish tomatoes are sulphite and preservative free! I rehydrated them for this recipe and they filled my kitchen with such a savoury aroma. I highly recommend checking out Prana’s online boutique for these delicious Sun-dried Tomatoes or any of their amazing products:  www.boutiqueprana.com 

For this recipe you will need:

  • 1 cup of Organic Sundried Tomatoes
  • 1/4 cup fresh Organic Basil Leaves
  • 1/4 cup Pine Nuts
  • 1/4 cup grated Parmigiano Cheese
  • 6 tbsp Extra Virgin Organic Olive Oil
  • 2 cloves of Garlic

If you have dehydrated Sun-dried Tomatoes, be sure to rehydrate them first. Simply soak them in warm water for 15-20 minutes and then drain.

Combine the ingredients in a food processor or high powered blender. Store in an air tight container in the fridge. Use this pesto with pasta, sandwiches, or whatever you choose!
