Easy Pesto Sauce

Ok, ok…. you need to step away from the bottled Pesto sauce in aisle 5 of the supermarket! I’m serious. There is no excuses after you read how fast you can make you’re own sauce up. And do yourself a favour, double, triple my recipe and freeze up large batches. If you’re kids are anything like mine it will soon become a fast week night meal.

2 large bunches of Basil. 

Juice of 1 Lemon.

2 Garlic cloves.

Salt and Pepper.

Handful of your favourite nuts. The traditional version uses pine nuts.

A good lug of Oilve Oil.


Lightly grill nuts until golden.

Place all ingredients in the blender and blitz to your liking.

Freeze up in portions for a fast meal. Pesto sauce is also delicious with chicken and steak. 

*Note: Nut options are roasted Almonds, Pecans, Walnuts, Cashews. DO NOT BUY THEM SALTED.
