Simple Healthy Pesto

I love pesto, but with it’s high oil content it can become a significant caloric addiction to your meal. I’ve made an oil free fiery pesto to eliminate this issue and allow me to add pesto to anything and everything. I love a kick to my food so i’ve used 1/2 a chilli, for less of a punch just use less chilli or omit it all together as there are so many other flavours from the other ingredients.



  • 30g Coriander
  • 1 Thumb Ginger
  • 1x Thumb Turmeric
  • 1/2 Chilli
  • 3x Garlic Cloves
  • 1 Thumb
  • 2 Very Ripe Beef Tomatoes


  1. Cut the stems off the coriander and chop the leaves finely.
  2. Peel the ginger and turmeric and chop finely.
  3. Peel the Garlic Cloves and chop finely. (Yes theres a lot o chopping finely)
  4. Slice up your chilli, add the seeds for extra heat or omit them for a milder pesto.
  5. Quarter your tomatoes.
  6. Add all ingredients to a blender and blend until smooth.
  7. Set aside for 30mins to thicken.
  8. Serve your pesto.


  • I like to use pesto to marinate my chicken or as a sauce.
  • Pesto on rice cakes is another winner.
  • Freeze pesto in individual portions, using silicone cake moulds or ice cube trays.
  • You could also add it into soups.
