Pesto served three ways + 1

It’s pesto-time! Every year Ms Aitch winterizes the balcony and has a lot of basil to use. That’s why she creates different sorts of pesto, like basil/parmesan, sun-dried-tomato/parmesan, walnut/parmesan and thaibasil/peanut. The thaibasil-pesto is only for Ms Aitch because Mr El doesn’t like the taste of anise.



1 bunch of fresh basil

a handful of pine nuts (roasted in a pan without oil)

50g parmesan

olive oil


150g sun-dried tomatoes

50g parmesan

olive oil


100g walnuts

50g parmesan

olive oil


1 bunch of thai-basil

50g peanuts

50g parmesan

olive oil 



Put any ingredients into the blender and mix it until it becomes a creamy pesto. Fill the pesto in rinsed jars and cover it with olive oil. Keep it in a cool and dark place.
