With our garden growing like crazy, we’ve had tons of basil and I can only eat so much tomato, basil, mozzarella salad!
So I decided to make some basil-walnut pesto with a bunch of basil.
Here is the recipe in pictures:
It was super simple – two small handfuls of walnuts, a ton of fresh basil, about a 1/4 c of Parmesan cheese and I mixed in olive oil until it became a thick paste. Then season with S&P as needed.
Note to self: It was not easy with my blender, it didn’t seem to rip the leaves very easily and it was a lot of stop, tamper with a spoon, stop, tamper, stop, tamper. If i had a food processor, I would have used it for this.
What else do you make with an over abundance of fresh herbs?
