Basil Pesto

Serves: Time: 00:15 Skill:
Basil is very versatile, great for general health and making your own pesto will leave you with a superb sense of pride! INGREDIENTS
  • 100g fresh Superb basil (Try our mini leaf basil)
  • 4-6 cloves garlic (depending on your pesto pungency pleasure)
  • 75g pine nuts (We also love a mix of pinenuts and cashews, or even sunflower seeds or walnuts)
  • 75g parmesan cheese, freshly grated
  • 3/4 cup of olive oil
  • Place the garlic, parmesan, and pine nuts in your kitchen whizz and blend to a grunty paste (not too fine).
  • Add the basil leaves and olive oil.
  • Blend until you reach a desired paste. Season and use as required.
We love pesto with pasta, on pizza base, on steak, chicken dishes, with tomato on crackers and spooned into mince and vegetarian dinners. This will keep for about 3 weeks in the fridge. Or freeze it and enjoy the summery taste of perfect pesto over the cooler wintery months. This makes one jar but just double or triple to your heart’s content!
