I love Pesto and you all should make it especially this time of year. I bought my basil plant about a week ago and have already made a batch of Almond Pesto. You can make so many different types of pesto and even freeze it in an airtight plastic bag.
- 2 Large handfuls of fresh Basil
- ½ cup fresh parmesan cheese
- 1 garlic clove
- 1 handful of raw almonds*
- ¼ cup EVOO or Grapeseed Oil (You may need more)
Simply add all ingredients to a food processor.
*Pine nuts work great in pesto but I like to switch it up from time to time even adding additional flavors to give a bit of a spice!
