Pesto. Saturday February 15, 2914
It is at this time of year when I regret not replacing my food processor after it stopped working a couple of years ago. I have heaps of basil in the garden and to make pesto without a food processor is so much more difficult. Eventually I got a half decent mix after using the blender and stab mixer . I like to try pesto with afew different nuts rather than the tradional pine nuts. I have made it several times using walnuts but today made it with almond meal as that was one less thing to blend. The almond meal adds a less strong flavour to the pesto but it is still quite nice. We had some on our pizza cooked on the barbecue tonight. This is just a blend of basil, almond meal, garlic, olive oil and a little salt. I forgot to add grated Parmesan but it still tastes ok.
