- You can use a food processor, an electric grinder or a more traditional mortar and pestle. If using mortar and pestle, pound garlic and pine nuts tougher first before adding herbs and olive oil.
- If using a food processor or an electric grinder, combine basil, rocket, pine nuts, garlic, zest of 1 lemon, 2 tbsp lemon juice, salt and olive oil. Process until smooth and then add and incorporate grated parmesan if you want to include it. It’s just as delicious without.
- Store in a clean, air-tight jar or container with a thin layer of olive oil on top to seal in the mix. Pesto should keep for up to a week in the fridge.
