This cheesy and nutty Fresh Basil Pesto is just rich in flavours and textures.

No wonder it complements other dishes well! This pesto is also super quick to make.

In just a few minutes, you’ll have a great sauce that goes well with meat, pasta, pizza, salads and lots of other food!


  1. Place all ingredients in a small food processor and blitz to combine.

  2. If the pesto looks a little thick add more olive oil and blitz again until you get the desired consistency.

All you need are very few ingredients and a food processor then you’re ready to blitz away until you get your preferred consistency.
