  • 50 g Pine Nuts
  • 80 g Basil Leaves
  • 150 ml Olive Oil
  • 2 Garlic Cloves
  • 50 g Parmesan Cheese


  • Heat the pine nuts over a gentle heat in a frying pan until they turn golden in colour. Stir occasionally.
  • When the pine nuts are golden, place all the ingredients in to your blender and blend until smooth.


We use a manual food processor to make this pesto in our van, we use the Zyliss easy pull.
If you don't fancy getting the pan out, you can always toast the pine nuts in the Ridgemonkey sandwich toaster.
