Basil Pesto

November 20, 2008

I’ve been busy writing a basil article and taking photos for my contribution to a book being published by Black Dog Publications and thought I’d share some of the photos so far.


Ingredients: basil, olive oil, pecorino cheese, parmesan cheese, pine nuts, garlic, salt and pepper


Roughly chopped


After gradually adding the olive oil


Hey pesto! (sorry, couldn’t resist!)

Looks almost luminous doesn’t it, tastes delicious though. Will have it later with baked potato. Yum.

It also tastes good with chicken, pasta, tomatoes, fish or salad.

For another great pesto recipe, see the forum post from ‘sunflowerherbfarm’ under ‘recipe exchange’ or click here if you prefer video.

Anyone else have any variations/favourite recipes?  Feel free to leave a comment below or add your recipe on the forum.
