When basil grows, it blooms! Now that I have a plant at home, I always have enough basil at hand to try out different basil based recipes or just throw it it in in literally everything, quite clearly I love this herb! ?

Pesto is one of my absolute favourite kind of spread. It’s fresh, herbal, nutty and garlicky.

I’ve always used a store bought pesto before, not this time! ?

Ingredients ✨

1. 1 cup fresh basil leaves
2. 4 garlic cloves (I always add more than what’s required, sucker for garlic!)
3. 1/2 cup toasted walnuts. You may replace it with pine nuts or almonds
4. 1/3 grated parmesan, I bought mine from @cloverdalefarmmarket
5. 1/3 cup extra virgin olive oil
6. Salt and pepper, to taste
7. 1 tbsp lime juice (optional)

Bring together everything in a blender. With the machine running slowly add olive oil.

Tip #1: If you like the consistency to be runny, add more olive oil

Tip #2: Store it in an airtight container. If you wish to freeze it, use an ice-cube tray.
