Basil Pesto

Makes approx 80 grams

This Pesto uses sunflower and pumpkin seeds in place of pinenuts, and does away with the usual lashings of Parmesan cheese, for a much healthier and equally tasty change. Make extra, as per the recipe, and store in the refrigerator for up to 5 days or freeze for up to 2 weeks.

 

Ingredients       
Garlic    4 cloves   
Sweet basil    30 g   
Olive oil    1½ tbsp   
Sea salt    Pinch   
Pepper black    To taste   
Pumpkin seed    10 g   
Sunflower seed    5 g   

 
Method
The quickest and easiest method is to simply place all ingredients in a small food processor and process until it is a fine puree. (Tip – use a chilled jug and keep processing time to a minimum, as heat will turn the pesto dark.)

The fun, stress-releasing way is to use a mortar and pestle and bash away! Start with the garlic and salt, then add other ingredients. (You can add a little vegetable stock if it is difficult to mix.)
