These past couple of weeks have been VERY exciting… why? We’ve been getting a brand spanking new kitchen installed. Apart from my bed, my kitchen is without a doubt my favourite thing in my home. I love cooking (especially with Marmite) so this costly project has been very exciting.
Last weekend the kitchen was nearly finished, well I Was able to use it to cook anyway. My new double oven, hob and dishwasher reignited my passion for cooking so I spent Saturday morning flipping through my many recipe books. I decide to try a recipe from one of my favourite cook books (and TV shows), the Saturday Kitchen bible – Pesto!!
I have always wanted to make my own pesto but never quite got around to it. Now we have a dishwasher I can used my awesome food processor to my heart’s content and there’s no washing up after!
about 4 tbsp extra virgin olive oil
110g pine nuts
- 3 cloves of garlic
1 large bunch basil
110g grated parmesan cheese
1 lemon, juice only
Next time I make this I will use double the amount of basil as I definitely thought it could use more.
