Recipe :: Homemade Basil Pesto

My husband makes an amazing Basil Pesto. He's been making it for years. Our Basil plants don't tend to live through Winter so up until now it's mostly been a Summer treat.
This year has been different...we kept our Basil plant inside in the kitchen near a window and it's thrived. To the point where we decided we had to make pesto to use up some of the leaves!

Luckily I talked hubby into sharing his recipe so you can have a go at making your own :-)

G's Homemade Basil Pesto

30g Basil Leaves
30g Parmesan Cheese
30g Pine Nuts
1 clove Garlic
Pinch Sea Salt
Drizzle of Oil

Stick it all in the food processor and mix. Easy as that! Spoon into a bowl. Find a cracker and get stuck in. 

Delicious spread on crackers, mixed in with pasta or even added to pizza!
Enjoy :-)


  1. Yum. We love pesto in this house, but our basil never produces enough to make pesto :( I might have to raid my dad's to make this!
