Incase you aren’t the biggest Mayo fan, I’ve got you covered with this two minute Fiery Keto Pesto! It’s sinfully good with just about everything and it can really transform a boring dinner 🙌
I love the stuff and would much prefer it to mayonnaise which I find a bit sickly at times. With Keto, the condiments choices are pretty limited unless you order lots of stuff online or just LOVE mayo with everything 🙄 So, if you’re like me, than this little two minute hack is the perfect condiment to add to your keto pantry!
Tip, add a tablespoon of pesto to your omelettes or quiche for a really delicious taste 😍
