There’s nothing like homemade Pesto and it’s a great way to use up basil. Follow my method for making this pesto and you’ll find another recipe for a pasta and pesto dish next.
50g pine nuts
150ml olive oil
2 garlic cloves
Heat a small frying pan over a high heat and fry the pine nuts until golden.
Put the pine nuts in a blitzer with the remaining ingredients and blitz until you have a paste.
Season to taste
