1/4 cup pine nuts
1 cup fresh basil
1/4 cup good quality olive oil
1/2 squeezed fresh lemon
1 large clove garlic (I used smoked)
Large pinch salt
Simply pop all the ingredients into a food processor and blitz until smooth. I like my pesto quite creamy so blend until a little runny.
*Tip, if you like a thick pesto use 1/2 cup of pine nuts instead of 1/4 cup*
