Delicious Sun-Dried Tomato Pesto Recipe | Easy & Healthy!

Why Sun-dried?

Did you know that the levels of lycopene, a powerful antioxidant, increase when tomatoes are sun-dried? In fact, sun-dried tomatoes have 12 times more antioxidants than their raw counterparts! They not only retain their health benefits but also burst with an intense, rich flavor.

Source and Quality

We take pride in sourcing the highest quality sun-dried tomatoes from India. These large tomatoes are hygienically dried using solar dryers and are lightly coated with 1% olive oil for natural preservation and enhanced flavor.

Health Benefits:

Sun-dried tomatoes are not only tasty but also packed with health benefits:

  • Support Immune System: Rich in vitamin C, which may help prevent complications from colds, such as pneumonia and lung infections.
  • Aid in Digestion: A 100-gram serving provides over 40% of the daily recommended intake of dietary fiber, aiding in digestion and relieving constipation.
