The perfect condiment alongside any meal. Some of my favourite ways to enjoy pesto include: adding a dollop on top of barbecued burgers, marinated and baked with chicken breast, tossed with your favourite pasta noodles or spiralized veggie noodles, like zucchini!
2 cups fresh basil leaves
Squeezed lemon juice from 1/2 lemon
1/4 cup Extra Virgin Olive Oil
1/2 garlic clove or 1 small clove
1/2 cup walnut pieces
1/4 cup freshly grated parmesan cheese
Combine all ingredients into food processor
Puree until mixture is blended and smooth
Transfer into air tight container and store in the fridge
**Note: To make this recipe more cost conscious, try mixing spinach in with the basil and try using sunflower seeds instead of walnuts. You will enjoy a different flavour, but have fun playing with different combinations to see what your tastebuds love most!
