Home Made Basil Pesto
I had some fresh basil in my fridge which I knew I wouldn't use up any time soon, so rather than letting it go to waste, I decided to make some pesto... and here is what I used:
1 bunch fresh Basil
Good glug of olive oil
Tablespoon of toasted pine nuts
Salt and freshly ground pepper
Juice of half a lemon
Place all ingredients into a small food processor/handheld coffee grinder (or similar) and blend together.
Taste the pesto and adjust the salt and pepper/olive oil/lemon accordingly.
Mix through pasta, use on pizza or in cooking!
