Almond Pesto

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
  • Salt
  • Pepper
  • 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.

Pesto goes on anything and everything. For a yummy appetizer serve on Baggett chips. Serve on grilled cheese, or use in anything to create a sauce with terrific flavor.

*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!
