Table sauce or pesto adds the much needed seasoning to a variety of foods, whether as breakfast or appetisers including bread, pizzas, salads, dips and even bruschetta. If you love pesto, here is a simple recipe that you should definitely try at home. Instead of the regular green pesto made from basil leaves, here is some beetroot pink pesto with a dash of yellow that chef Amrita Kaur recently made.
