Low-Carb and Keto Recipes with Pesto
I love Basil Pesto whether it’s homemade or from a jar, so I’m updating this collection of amazing Low-Carb and Keto Recipes with Pesto! Get your pesto on with these 14 tasty recipes with pesto!
Today I’m updating this collection of Low-Carb and Keto Recipes with Pesto and revisiting my love for basil pesto! And if you have a summer herb garden where you’re growing basil, it’s time to be making Basil Pesto with Lemon or simply freezing your fresh basil if you have lots of basil! I have about six healthy basil plants growing along my front walk and trimming the basil is on my agenda for the weekend!
And I’ve already been making my favorite Basil Pesto with Lemon this year, which I freeze in ice cube trays and then seal the cubes in bags with the FoodSaver Vacuum Sealer. I love to pull a few of those pesto cubes out of the freezer and use them to give delicious basil flavor to dishes any time of year, which is why you’ll find a few recipes using the oven in this collection of favorite low-carb recipes with pesto. You can save those for winter if it’s too hot for oven cooking where you are.
But please, make homemade pesto while fresh basil is plentiful! Or if homemade pesto is just not happening at your house, you can definitely use my favorite purchased pesto to try these amazing recipes with pesto. And basil pesto is very low in carbs, so enjoy.
