Classic Pine Nut Pesto

Ingredients

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

 

Method

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*
