RECIPE OF THE MONTH
INGREDIENTS FOR 4 PEOPLE
25g fresh basil leaves, weighted without stalks
1 clove of garlic, peeled
2 tbsp. pine nuts
100ml olive oil
25g freshly grated parmesan cheese
Salt and Freshly Grounded Black Pepper
Place the basil leaves, garlic and pine nuts in the food processing bowl.
Add the olive oil and blend until well chopped and creamy using maximum speed.
Add the parmesan cheese and seasoning and briefly process to combine.
Transfer to screw topped jar if not using immediately.
It’s best used the same day, because the colour fades on keeping. It can, however, be kept in the fridge for a week.
Serve with pasta, chicken, fish or soup.
