Homemade pesto

Hello Everyone!

I’ve always been fond of pesto. I used to buy it but making it is really easy peasy, so I now make my own.

I love it on pasta, fish, as dipping sauce for my Italian kebabs, with chicken… and it’s very easy to make. Keep on reading and find out!

Happy cooking!

  • 2 pots basil
  • 2 tbsp grated parmesan
  • 2 tbsp pine nuts
  • 1 clove garlic (minced)
  • Pepper
  • Salt

Method

  • Put the basil leaves, parmesan, nuts and garlic in a food processor and blitz it.
  • While the machine is going, gently add the olive oil.
  • Taste for seasoning and add some pepper and salt if you think it needs it.
  • Pour the pesto in a jar, top it with some olive oil and put on the lid.
  • Store in the fridge.

Note

  • Every time you use the pesto, cover it with a little olive oil before putting it back into the fridge, it’ll keep longer.
