Punchy Pesto

Hello Lovelies,

I love cooking, there is something very cathartic about flicking through recipe books to find something new or just cooking an old family fave.  Pesto is one of those things that is so easy to whip up, but the majority of us (me included) are lazy and opt for a jar which just isn't the same, real pesto is punchy, fresh and oozes flavour, perfect for pasta, pizza and sandwiches. 


  • One Basil plant
  • 50g toasted Pine nuts
  • one cup of fresh Parmesan grated
  • one clove of Garlic
  • half a cup of Olive oil
  • one pinch of salt

Tear all the leaves off your basil plant and a few stems, grate your Parmesan and measure your oil and pine nuts then throw everything in a food processor and blitz it, you can then decide whether you want it smooth or slightly chunky but that is all personal preference.

Does anyone else make their own pesto?
