Fresh basil Pesto   💚

There is something just so satisfying about making fresh basil pesto. The aroma, the taste…makes the perfect sauce or dip!

It is so easy to make and takes just a few minutes to blitz up in a food processor/blender.

It will keep for a week in an airtight container if kept in the fridge.


  • 3 garlic cloves
  • Handful of pine nuts
  • Parmesan cheese – 50 grams or just a big handful 
  • 3 tablespoons of olive oil
  • Bunch of fresh basil 
  • Salt to season
  • Teaspoon of crushed black pepper

If you want to make more just increase the amount of basil and oil.


    Literally put all the ingredients in your food processor/ blender and blit for 3 minutes or more till it is all fine and an almost smooth paste (see picture below).

    You can then eat it with pasta, bread, salad, as a dip for crisps or carrot crudettes…as a marinade…and so much more!
