Skirmantė likes to experiment in the kitchen, so she has already tried different variations of pesto. “Although there is a traditional recipe for this dish, I sometimes like to change the ingredients to Lithuanian ones or those found in our stores. For example, in the preparation of traditional pesto we need pine nuts, the price of which, unfortunately, is not friendly to the wallet, so I replace them with our usual sunflowers. The taste changes a little, but to discover something new. It’s the best way,” says the blogger.
This time, Scirmante made a seasoning for dill, but the blogger’s followers share that cilantro, carrot leaves and arugula are also suitable for such a dish.
“I think it is possible to do this with different herbs, it is important to evaluate how the taste changes when rubbed and chopped – they can become bitter, sour, more intense, more pungent in smell and taste. In this case, you need to evaluate how much spice to add to the dishes,” he advises. .
