Potato Hash with Sun Dried Tomato Pesto is a fantastic garlicky and tangy side dish. It is flavorful and filling. Potatoes are a good source of potassium which is great for heart health and energy. This recipe is inspired by my boss and I created this dish because I was in love with the pesto from her recipe. The pesto contains basil, a powerhouse herb, full of flavor and many health benefits. The sun dried tomatoes give the dish more complexity and tang. Add the pesto to any pasta dish, use as a dressing on a chickpea salad, use as a spread on a sandwich, or top over poultry.

  1. In a blender, add all of the pesto ingredients minus the water. Blend and add in the water slowly to get the right consistency.
  2. In a pan, on medium high heat, heat the olive oil and add the chopped onions. Cook for about 2 minutes.
