Makes 1 cup

I have a couple of pesto options on the blog, but I realized that I did not have the traditional version with basil and pine nuts. So here you go! Make sure to prepare extra and freeze it for another day!


  • 1/3 cup of pine nuts
  • 1/3 cup of grated parmesan
  • 1 bunch of fresh basil leaves
  • 1/3 cup of olive oil
  • 1 garlic clove


Combine the basil leaves, pine nuts and garlic in a food processor and turn on until you get a paste kind of texture.

Add the olive oil and cheese in two times. You may add more oil if you want a more liquid pesto, I think it is perfect like this, not too garlicky and super fragrant!!
