Author's Notes

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.

Cooking Instructions

HIDE IMAGES
Step 1
Place Fresh Basil Leaf (2 cup), Garlic (2 clove), Grated Parmesan Cheese (1/3 cup), Almonds (1/4 cup), Salt and 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.
Step 2
Store in an airtight container in the fridge for up to 1 week.
