You will want to put this more than just your pizzas and pastas – avocado toasts, poached eggs, caprese salad, bake it into bread, mix it into hummus, and I could go on forever. Delicious.
- 3 cups packed basil Stems removed
- 2 cloves garlic Rough chopped
- 1/4 cup toasted pine nuts
- 1/4 cup olive oil
- 1/4 cup parmesan grated
- salt and pepper to taste
Trim the stems off the basil.
Quarter or roughly chop the garlic (if you put it in the food processor whole they will not break down)
Toast pine nuts.
Put the basil, garlic, and pine nuts and 1/4 tsp pepper in the food processor.
With the food processor on, slowly add the olive oil.
Finely grate the parmesan into a medium sized bowl. The parmesan is salty so we don't add salt until the end.
Add the contents of the food processor to the parmesan.
Season with salt and pepper to taste.
