I had so much fun creating these flavors. Pesto can be used alone on toasted bread, or even in a pasta.
1/2 cup of fresh basil leaves, chopped
4 tablespoons of mixed nuts, in the blender
5 cloves of garlic
3 long red chillis (keeps the seeds of only one, or not)
1 spoon olive oil
3 tablespoons soya oil
2 mls of dried oregano
1/2 cup of really fresh grated parmesan cheese
1/2 the juice of a big lemon
I put everything into the blender, using the attachment normally used to grind coffee beans.
Keep tasting it all to see how much you need of each ingredient, perhaps you want more of those grounded buts, or more lemon, or more chilli (then add the seeds).
Its an amazing very zingy condiment. Get ready for your taste buds to get shaking!!
