Zucchini pesto is a new recipe, super quick and perfect for consuming the last zucchini of the season.

In this pesto, zucchini should not be cooked and therefore should be eaten in a few days, with these doses a 400 g jar comes out.

To make zucchini pesto suitable for vegans, it is necessary to omit the Parmesan cheese or replace it with nutritional yeast flakes. While for lactose intolerant people like me it is possible to use parmesan aged 22 months, which is naturally lactose-free.

I find it ideal for seasoning pasta but in my opinion it is also very good for filling bruschetta, it has a delicate flavor and I am convinced that you will like it.

I leave you with the recipe for the Thermomix Zucchini pesto.

See you for the next recipe!
