Fresh Organic Basil…pesto time

Fresh Falklands Basil calls for Pesto!

 

Here are two rather lovely pesto recipes (both vegan)

  • 2 cups fresh basil (one pack from the shop)
  • 1/2 cup Parsley (optional)
  • 1/3 cup walnuts
  • 1/3 cup olive oil
  • 3 garlic cloves or 1 TB Kitchen Garden garlic
  • 1/2  tsp salt
  • 1/8 tsp pepper

 

Puree everything together until at your favourite consistency in a blender or with a hand blender. Eat on warm or cold food, don’t cook or it will be bitter.

 

  • 2 cups fresh basil
  • 1 cup of cilantro (optional)
  • 1/2 cup almonds
  • 2 garlic cloves
  • 2 TB lemon juice
  • 1/2 tsp salt
  • 1/4 cup olive oil

Repeat as above.

 

Pesto is great on noodles, vegetable noodles or even with meat as a side. I love having mine with some fish, it just tastes so good! If you cook your pesto, it can get a little bitter as the basil goes. Keep this raw or serve on warm noodles to protect the flavour. If mixing with noodles, eat immediately.  Why not stir a tablespoon into your favourite soup?
