I'm crazy about the Barilla sun-dried tomato pesto. However, the local store where I was buying it has dropped it. Can I get a similar effect by putting in a blender or food processor the sun-dried tomatoes that come in oil in a jar?

Note, I have not found another dairy-free brand of sun-dried tomato pesto. (I'm allergic to dairy.) The Barilla version seems to be the only one. (I am in the U.S.)


I see that there is a close vote. Feedback would be helpful so I can recast the question or avoid asking off-topic in future.

  • Ingredients list for it is : "DICED TOMATOES, SUNFLOWER OIL, ONIONS, SUN-DRIED TOMATOES, BASIL, SALT, GARLIC, SUGAR, OREGANO, CAPERS" – Joe Mar 11 at 16:50

    Not sure how much storage space you have, but you could trying asking the store if they would order you a case of the sauce. Jarred sauce would keep for a long time. Stores only have so much shelf space and they tend to stock items that turn over. If they don't sell much they will switch to something else. – MaxW Mar 11 at 21:07

Yes, you can use chopped up sun dried tomatoes, either in oil or dry stored.

For the dry sun-dried tomatoes, you should re-hydrated them a little bit in warm water before mixing them up.

As always, you will need to experiment with the ingredient ratios to get the flavour you like best.

  • What do you think about the blender or food processor? – aparente001 Mar 12 at 21:12
  • food processor, you do not want to turn it into a paste. – Max Mar 12 at 23:03
