At the farmer’s market last weekend, we also picked up an eggplant. I didn’t have a particular recipe in mind, but Amore had generously sent me a sample of their Pesto Paste and I wanted to give it a try. The ingredient list is very simple and the tube is convenient. I mixed equal parts of the paste and olive oil, and then brushed the eggplant slices with this mixture and put them on the grill. If you’re short on time after a long day at the beach, this is a simple way to prepare some veggies with dinner.

While fresh basil is plentiful right now, this pesto paste does all the work for you, and is available year round. I have a few more recipes which I’d like to try with this product, and next time I’ll make sure to snap a few photos of the work in progress.

  1. this looks execellent…possibly a slice would have been good on the grass feed burgers…:)

  2. Is this the tubed stuff you can find in the produce section? This looks so good.

  3. @Nanc – you're right, that would have been good!

    @Lee – Yes, this is the tubed stuff, but at my grocery store it's near the tomato paste in the 'Italian' section rather than the produce section.
