It’s like when you opted for the potted parsley or basil instead of the packaged herb—what do you do with the rest before winter bites?!

Make your own pesto! Sharable, munchable, delectable. A million times Yummm.


2 cups fresh Basil Leaves

½ cup fresh Parsley (flat- or curly-leaf)

1/3 cup Pine Nuts

½ cup grated Parmesan

½ cup Olive Oil

2 Garlic Cloves (minced)

Salt and Pepper to taste

  • Combine Basil, Parsley, and Pine Nuts in a blender or food processor and pulse a few times (for really chunky, rustic-style Pesto, grind with a pestle and mortar!).
  • Add Parmesan, Olive Oil, minced Garlic Cloves, Salt and Pepper, and combine until smooth.
  • Eat with toasted slices of baguette, crackers, or mixed with pasta.

I started YogaHub out of a room at the back of someone else's house back in 2012 with nothing more than an idea. I'd been teaching Yoga since 2008 and had no intention of opening a Yoga Studio. I think, like everything I've done, I just decided one day I was going to give it a try. And try I did and if you're reading this I guess I'm still trying.
