Fresh Basil Leaves
Grated Parmesan Cheese
or Pine Nuts
Ground Black Pepper
Fresh Basil Leaves (2 cups)
Garlic (2 cloves)
Grated Parmesan Cheese (1/3 cup)
Almonds (1/4 cup)
Salt (to taste)
Ground Black Pepper (to taste)
in a blender and pulse until almost smooth. Now pour the
Olive Oil (1/3 cup)
(plus 2 Tbsp) in slowly, continuing to pulse the mixture until it comes together.
Store in an airtight container in the fridge for up to 1 week.
Pesto is traditionally made with pine nuts - feel free to use them, I like the almonds for something different!
If you use pine nuts, I recommend that you lightly toast the pine nuts in a dry frying pan over a medium heat until they are only slightly golden, (don’t be tempted to toast them any more or it will change their flavour) before adding them to the blender with the other ingredients.
