This pesto is so speedy to make, and in my opinion fresh pesto always tastes so much better than out of a jar! All you need is a few simple ingredients, a blender or food processor and something delicious to cover in it.
- 50g basil (a large handful)
- 100g pine nuts
- 100ml olive oil
- 1 clove of garlic (or 2 if you’re a garlic fiend like me)
- juice of one lemon
- 2 tbsp nutritional yeast
- a good pinch of both salt and pepper
- This couldn’t be easier, add all of your ingredients to a food processor or blender, and blend up until everything is combined and just about smooth, I like mine a little chunky still but you can customize it however you like!
My favourite, and probably the most obvious way to have this is stirred through a big bowl of pasta, with a few cherry tomatoes mixed in and a large handful of rocket on the side.
It also goes really nicely dolloped on top of homemade hummus.
