Toasted Walnut Basil Pesto and {Blendtec Giveaway}

(this giveaway is now closed…thank you to all who entered)

I have been making pesto this past month like it’s nobody’s business. Every time I run out, I make more. I put it on everything…pizza, pasta, soup, bread and even use it as a dip for…pretzels.

I love me some pesto.

I normally make my pesto with pine nuts, but since I have a Costco sized bag of walnuts hanging in the pantry I have been using walnuts instead. And I like it. It gives the pesto and earthier flavor, and if you didn’t know, walnuts kick butt in the nutrition department. So it’s all good.

Now in addition to this pesto recipe, I have another favorite thing to share with you. My new Blendtec blender. Blendtec was nice enough to send me a blender to try out as well as one to give to one of my readers – that’s you.

How cool is that? You will love this blender people, it’s hard core. I have made 20 something smoothies in it already (there is a digital counter on the blender that counts your uses, my kids and I think that is the coolest thing). I’ve even started to make whole juices. I’ve made salsa … and this pesto. I’m having some fun with my new blender. And the winner will too.

Giveaway:

Blendtec Total FourSide Blender (value $484.95) plus an additional WildSide jar.

(Blender is factory reconditioned, as the one I received is)

Starts today, Tuesday August 9 and ends Friday, August 19 at 12 noon (EST) {edited to fix date to Aug 19, not Aug 20}

Sorry, giveaway open to US readers only. Winner will be chosen randomly using Pick Giveaway Winner plugin application {edited to write Pick Giveaway Winner plugin application instead of Random.org}

    Hahaha! Apparently I was so excited I forgot my favorite thing! Green smoothies! I add fresh ground flax seed(throw it in the Blendtech before other ingredients and give it a whirl). Then spirullina, a couple dates for sweetness, frozen fruit(blueberries, strawbrries, mango, pineapple, apples, bananna, rasberries, peaches….. I could go on fover) :-), then add your fresh greens. Spinach is pretty mild if you are just starting out and are not too sure of the flavor, kale, chard, mustard greens, there are infinite possibilities and combinations. Always add water (I do a little less than half of the ingredient pile- less water makes it thicker/more water is thinner) then blend to your hearts content! :-)

    Oh wow, Aggie – I’m excited about this giveaway! I’d LOVE to have a Blendtec! :) My blender burned up and I was getting ready to purchase a different (more affordable at this time) brand but I’ll hold off for just a tad longer, just in case. I know I’d be using it most often for smoothies, but I’d love to make nut butters, pesto and sooo many other things!

    That pesto looks amazing–I like to put cilantro in with the basil & co…mmmm. My roommate killed my blender, so I sure could use one. Pesto is the top blender recipe I make followed by:
    Romesco sauce
    Chicken liver pate
    crepe batter
    smoothies

    Hi, Aggie [and everybody else, too!]. I use my blender the most to make smoothies with frozen fruit, some juice and a little bit of honey or agave syrup or Splenda. Also use it to make shakes w/frozen coffee cubes, Silk, non-fat ice cream and Splenda.

    I must confess that since the blinder incident of ’95 I have not even attempted to turn a blender on. Turns out you can have a huge argument with your girlfriend after dumping the contents of a blender all over the kitchen counter…apparently if you don’t know how to put a blender together to hold that fancy milk shake you just made, you are going to have some cleaning to do.

    I don’t have a blender but was at Costco last week and fell in love wih the Blendtec….. didn’t purchases it though… hubby:(
    I do use a food processor, but it does NOTHING like a Blendtec Can.
    So if I had one, I would:
    Make amazing soup. tried it at Costco.Love that you can seeds and all and it heats it up.
    Almond Milk Strawberry Ice Cream……… Delish!
    Power Smoothies for my hubby…….and my self
    New favorite thing to try………..Chia Seeds. They are a miracle for joint pain.
    Boy do I hope I win one of those:)

    I use my Blendtec blender every single day to make a power smoothy. A powerful way to start the day with cleaning and renewing is to bend dark green vegetables (kale, spinach, etc), blueberries, strawberries, orange, banana, flaxseeds, sunflower seeds, and organic apple juice. With more and more experts adding their voices to the benefits of following a plant-based diet, Blendtec makes this lifestyle choice easy!!

    Hi Angie, I have you on my facebook also. I don’t have a cell so I don’t tweet. I have two blenders. One is so loud (plastic top) it scares my dog each morning. The other is glass top and heavy and I can’t use my right arm so it makes it hard to use that one. I make protein drinks everyday with whatever fruit I can get my hands on. We also use it to make pesto sauce with herbs from our little garden. Even used it to blend up some tomatoes off the vine yesterday as I was out of tomato paste and sauce. Not sure how I managed that, I guess I was cutting corners the last time I went grocery shopping. I love our recipes and your children are beautiful. (I am not trying to win points as I know it is a random pick) I just wanted to let you know that but then. You know. LOL Have a good day.

    I make smoothies for my kids in my blender several times a week. My oldest child won’t eat a fruit or veggie to save his life so I make the smoothies so that I can get some healthy foods into him.

    As we have no food processor, I use my blender for everything. To puree soups and sauces, make smoothies, crumb graham crackers, cookies or nuts for crusts, and some of it actually turns out okay lol.
    Thanks for this cool giveaway :)
