Recipe: Basil Pesto Loaf

Bread with aromatic herbs
September 28, 2010

Basil Pesto LoafI wanted to try a pesto bread, and I used my homemade pesto, with the last basil harvest.

I hoped for a green bread, but the millet flour become brown when cooked. But it's okay: the pesto can't be seen but it can be tasted!


This loaf was perfect with cheese, tuna oil and also my chili jam.
