Pesto s bosiljkom i domaćim kefirom - Pesto with basil and homemade kefir

Updated: Dec 16, 2019


Pesto je umak koji je nastao u Genovi. Obično se izrađuje kombinacijom usitnjenih pinjola, češnjaka, sira Parmigiano-Reggiano, maslinova ulja i listova svježeg bosiljka, koji umaku daju svojstven svijetlo zeleni ton. Pesto služi kao idealna zamjena za umake na bazi rajčice i odličan je dodatak jelima od tjestenine, povrća, toplim ili hladnim salatama i jelima od piletine.


Ovo je moja pesto varijanta s domaćim kefirom poslužena uz bezglutenske penne.


Sastojci i koraci pripreme
  • 2 češnja češnjaka

  • šaka prženih badema

  • 4 jušne žlice domaćeg kefira

  • 2 jušne žlice soka od iscjeđenog limuna

  • 2 jušne žlice maslinovog ulja

  • šaka svježeg bosiljka (listovi)

  • 1/2 čajne žličice himalajske morske soli U blenderu (ja koristim Nutribullet :) prvo usitnite bademe oko 10 sekundi, zatim dodajte ostale sastojke i miješajte sve oko 15 sekundi, da se sastojci razrade i povežu. Pesto poslužite uz tjesteninu ili njoke. Ovaj put biram penne bez glutena. Uživajte!





Pesto with basil and homemade kefir


Pesto is a sauce that originated in Genoa, Italy. It’s typically made from a combination of crushed pine nuts, garlic, Parmigiano-Reggiano cheese, olive oil, and basil leaves, which give the sauce its distinctive bright green hue.


Pesto serves as an ideal substitute for tomato-based pasta sauces and also makes tasty addition to pasta dishes, vegetable plates, warm or cold salads, and chicken dishes.


This is my pesto option with homemade kefir served with gluten free penne.


Ingredients and preparation steps
  • 2 garlic cloves

  • handful of roasted almonds

  • 4 tablespoons of homemade kefir

  • 2 tablespoons of lemon juice

  • 2 tablespoons of olive oil

  • handful of fresh basil

  • 1/2 teaspoon of Himalayan sea salt


In a food processor or blender (I love Nutribullet :) first blend almonds for about 10 seconds, then add other ingredients and blend all for about 15 seconds to break down the ingredients.

Serve pesto with pasta or gnocchi.

This time I choose gluten free penne. Enjoy!
