Pea shoot and mint pesto on bread

Anyone else a huge pesto fan?! I could eat pesto on anything! I don’t discriminate, I eat all kinds. ūüėČ If you haven’t tried making pesto with peas yet, the time is now! It gives the pesto a very fresh, spring flavour and the mint just adds a little something different. Peas actually have quite a bit of protein so this is great way for vegans or vegetarians to get an extra boost on their pasta. I used walnuts in this recipe, but you can use¬†pine nuts¬†or whatever your have on hand. Trust me this recipe is super is easy to make and worth the time. Leave me a comment and let me know how you liked it.
