Easy Homemade PestoJanuary 14, 2015
We love including pesto in our recipes. But did you know that it’s really simple to make from scratch? Just a few ingredients and….presto you have easy homemade pesto!
|20 g||pine nuts|
|1 clove||garlic, peeled & crushed|
|30 g||parmesan cheese, roughly chopped|
|3 tbs||olive oil|
1. Heat a frying pan over high heat and toast the pine nuts without oil, until golden brown. Keep aside.
2. Using a mixer or blender, combine the pine nuts, garlic, basil, parmesan and olive oil. Sprinkle with pepper and salt and mix/blend until the pesto has the desired thickness. Add additional oil to make the pesto thin and runny if you like, and bring to taste with salt and pepper.
3. Add your pesto to pasta, pizza, salad, baked bread, meat, bruschetta or use it as a dipping sauce just to name a few ideas!
