Rocket High Five Pesto
This pesto is wonderfully peppery and a great addition to numerous dishes. Using Groovy Food’s High Five Oil is an easy way to sneak in more healthy fats into your diet and adds a lovely nutty flavour to the pesto. Try serving this drizzled over fish or chicken dishes, roasted vegetables, pasta, risottos, pizzas and warming winter soups. If you wish to increase the omega 3 fats try replacing half of the pine nuts with lightly toasted walnuts or pumpkin seeds.
