This versatile pesto is so delicious and has such a wonderful flavor. You can serve it over boiled eggs like I did in this recipe, or toss with some pasta, zucchini noodles, or even spaghetti squash.
With Easter right around the corner, this could be a perfect addition for a family brunch.
Something new for the kids to venture out and try…and something the adults will drool over! I like these because they are packed with protein and vitamins. The pesto is loaded with fresh herbs and spinach as well for an extra boost of nutrition.
The process is quite simple as well. The most time consuming part is boiling the eggs! 🙂 I hope you get around to making this pesto because it is to.die.for!! Trust me, it’s even #fianceapproved.
Pour in 1 cup water and place the trivet at the bottom of your Instant Pot. Carefully place a dozen eggs on the travel in a single layer. Put the lid on, plug in, make the the valve is set to sealing and cook on manual high pressure for 5 minutes.
During the 5 minutes, make an ice water bath by placing ice in a large bowl and filling about half way with water. This is for the eggs once they are done to cool them down/stop the cooking process.
Once the Instant Pot beeps, use a towel to carefully switch the valve from sealing over to venting and let the steam release for about 1 minute. Remove the lid, and place eggs in the ice water bath. Be careful, they will be hot! Use a spoon to remove from the Instant Pot.
Let them chill (literally) and then remove and peel the shells off! Magic!

I could seriously eat pesto with a spoon, but I’ve never considered hard boiled eggs as a potential vehicle for pesto. This looks like a really fun alternative to deviled eggs.
Me too!! Haha I had to think of another way to eat pesto besides on pasta! 🙂 Thank you!
