Most people hear the word pesto and they think basil. That's because the kind of pesto most people are familiar with hails from Liguria, where basil grows abundantly. But pesto can include just about any herb that has been pounded with cheese and nuts, which means that pesto can be enjoyed any time of year, not just during the summer months when basil is plenty.

Our definition of pesto is even a little more relaxed these days, including pureed veggies too. From broccoli to beets to oregano and thyme, there are many ways to make and enjoy pesto throughout the colder months. Here are a few recipes to get you started:
