RECIPE TIIIIME :D I often wonder if other have these weird food obsessions as I do... I like to keep it simple and this pesto recipe definitely falls in that category.. Pesto can be made with so much more than just basil which is the typical pesto recipe you'll find.. But lately... I've been having this green pesto OBSESSION that I 'accidentally' made using everything green I had in the fridge! When I make something good, I tend to eat it all day everyday till somehow I forget about it.. I eat this stuff with literally everything. Meat with pesto, salad with pesto, sweet potatoes with pesto, you name it, I'll find a way to add it. It's the same way I feel about butter.. If you know me, you know I have a serious butter obsession - not just in my coffee! But let's skip right to the point here, this is too good...
WHAT YOU'LL NEED
- 1 bunch/ big handfull basil
- 1 bunch cilantro
- 1,5 - 2 bunch fresh italian parsley
- 1/2 cup olive oil
- 1/2 tsp salt
- 1-2 Cloves of Garlic (depending on how spicy you want it/how bad you wanna smell ;P )
- 0.25lb Pine Nuts
- Juice from 1 lime or 1 lemon
On a dry pan, lightly roast your pine nuts til they get golden brown
Add all your ingredients in a food processor or a Vitamix if you have one and give it a go on medium speed using the tamper.
Blend till it has a smooth consistency but not too smooth as you still want some 'chunks' in there.. and that's it... PESTO OBSESSION IS SERVED!!
