Why choose Orominerva's L'altro pesto verde
A more pleasant and lighter version of pesto alla Genovese, L'altro pesto verde expresses all the freshness and typical aromas of basil with an exclusive organoleptic profile. To make it, we put together a few ingredients, all Italian, and preserve their properties and value.
We use Genovese basil PDO, a unique and essential raw material for the production of pesto, which occupies a prime position among Italian excellences. We combine it with cheese and our own EVO oil, an extra virgin olive oil of the highest quality, which helps to give the pesto its distinctive and typical character.
Our basil pesto is a delight that caters to different taste requirements, an innovative pesto that differs from the classic Genoese in the choice of certain ingredients, but not in quality. The other pesto verde is the encounter between tradition and experimentation, a perfect collaboration to bring goodness to the table in an evolved form.
Basil pesto without garlic, also for vegetarians
We arrive at our pesto verde with the usual attention to ingredient selection and processing, elevating the most traditional authentic flavours. We add our own twist to the recipe, creating a pesto without garlic, also for vegetarians.
By not having garlic, L'altro pesto verde is more delicate and digestible than classic Genovese. We also use a long-ripened cheese with vegetable rennet, which is a rennet produced by extracting vegetable enzymes from thistle flowers, so the pesto is perfectly suitable for vegetarians.
A basil pesto that retains the intense flavour and aromas of freshly made pesto.
