Fresh Homemade Pesto
Ingredients
  • 2 cups fresh basil leaves
  • ½ cup shredded parmesan cheese
  • 2-3 garlic cloves, minced
  • Juice of half a lemon
  • ¼ cup pine nuts, lightly toasted in the oven or in a pan
  • ½ cup olive oil
  • silicone molds for freezing - where to get
  • mini food processor - where to get
Instructions
  1. Put your basil, parmesan cheese, olive oil, lemon juice, garlic and toasted pine nuts in the food processor. Blend for about a minute. Add more olive oil if it’s too thick. It should be a little runny and not too pasty.
  2. A little tip: you do not need to add salt because the parmesan cheese is very salty. I learned that the hard way!
