How to Make Basil Pesto

If you have prepared the ingredients needed, now time to start cooking. There are 6 steps you must follow to make Basil Pesto in your home by yourself.

    Step 1
  • Roast your garlic in the oven. (You don't have to do this, but it will give your pesto a nice flavour.) preheat your oven to 400°F. See how in my recipe attached.
  • Step 2
  • Pick your fresh basil leaves
  • Step 3
  • Wash the basil
  • Step 4
  • Combine the basil, garlic, salt n pepper and pine nuts in your food processor and pulse a few times.
  • Step 5
  • If you want to freeze your pesto, don't add the cheese now. Simply add the olive oil slowly while you mix the ingredients. Then line some ice cube trays with plastic wrap and pour in your pesto to freeze. Add a layer of plastic wrap on top, making no room for air. Later, you can pop these out and melt them in a pan and then add your Parmesan cheese to taste.
  • Step 6
  • If you want to enjoy some fresh pesto, add the cheese (not the full amount - eyeball it based on how much you froze) and mix it in the food processor. If you didn't opt to freeze, slowly add in your olive oil while mixing. Scrape down the sides to get all the ingredients mixed in well.
