Hi.

Welcome to my blog. I document my many adventures in food. Hope you find something that takes your fancy. 

CLASSIC PESTO

CLASSIC PESTO

If you follow my blog your may have already seen my alternative pesto, walnut & kale pesto. Unlike that one, this is the more traditional method of making pesto, with basil and pine nuts. Its a great thing to have lying around in your fridge, just add it to some pasta & away you go. Stay tuned for my next blog post which utilises this pesto to make a great pasta, rocket and bacon salad. 

Ingredients:

  • 50g Parmesan Cheese
  • 50g Pine Nut
  • 80g Basil
  • 150ml Olive Oil
  • 2 Garlic Clove

Method:

  1. Heat a small frying pan over a low heat. Cook the pine nuts until golden, shaking occasionally.
  2. Put into a food processor with the basil, Parmesan, olive oil and garlic cloves. Process until smooth and season to taste. 
  3. Eat immediately, or transfer to a sterilised container, refrigerate and consume within two weeks.
