Serves: 3-4

Prep Time: 10 minutes

Cook Time: 10 minutes


2 cloves garlic

½ cup pine nuts

1½ cup basil leaves

1 cup rocket leaves

½ teaspoon lemon zest

1 tablespoon lemon juice

1 cup olive oil

2 tablespoons grated Parmesan cheese

Salt to taste


Blend together the garlic cloves and pine nuts in a grinder.

Add in the basil, rocket, lemon zest, lemon juice, salt and olive oil and grind until you reach a smooth consistency.

Now throw in the grated Parmesan and your pesto is ready!

#EatExtra: Store in an air-tight container, and drizzle a thin layer of olive oil over the top to seal it in. You could use this as a salad dressing, spread for your canapés when you’re entertaining, or even use it with pasta.
