Pesto

From pastas to grains, savory tarts to salad dressings, Pesto is one of the most versatile ingredients you can have on hand.

  • 1 big bunch Basil – cleaned and stalks removed
  • ¼ cup Parmesan Cheese- grated
  • 1 clove Garlic
  • Pinch Sea Salt
  • Pinch Black Pepper
  • ¼ cup Olive Oil
  • ¼ cup Olive Oil

Blitz all in CuisinArt using first half the olive oil .

 Add  the remaining  half olive oil slowly until you get your own preferred consistency. This depends on how big a bunch of Basil you actually have. 

Try to achieve a Pesto that is not too oily not too dry.  Season to taste- salt pepper,cheese.

 Will stay fresh in refrigerator for up to 1 week. To maintain its bright green color, make sure the pesto has a thin layer of olive oil on top.

I've had the great good fortune of living abroad for more than a decade. The traditions, comfort and memories of home are things I cherish and carry with me on my travels. What I wasn't expecting was that other cultures and flavors would seep into my own traditions and favorites and influence a new batch of classics. Heres to evolving traditions and new memories!
