- 2 x bunches of basil
- 1 pack of pine nuts
- 1 x fresh clove of garlic
- Juice of 1/2 lemon
- 6 tbsp extra virgin olive oil
- generous grind of rock salt and black pepper
- 20g grated parmesan or grand padana (optional, leave out if vegan or dairy free)
Put everything in a blender and pulse until it is paste. I like leaving mine a bit more course so you can get a bit of texture from the pine nuts but it's up to you!
