Ingredients: Homemade Pesto

  • 2 cup Fresh Basil Leaves
  • 1 1/2 cup Extra Virgin Olive Oil
  • 1 1/4 cup Grated Asiago Cheese
  • 1 cup Pine Nuts

How to Make Homemade Pesto

If you have prepared the ingredients needed, now time to start cooking. There are 15 steps you must follow to make Homemade Pesto in your home by yourself.

    Step 1
  • In a dry non stick skillet, toast the pine nuts over medium-low heat until they are golden brown and give off a fragrant nutty smell.
  • Step 2
  • Note: Pine nuts can be expensive, the most economical source for them has been Sam's Club.
  • Step 3
  • Using a micro planar, remove the zest (just the yellow surface) from all 3 lemons and then juice all 3 lemons. Strain the juice to remove seeds and pulp.
  • Step 4
  • Add basil (firmly pack the basil into the measuring cup when portioning), pine nuts, garlic, juice (strained) and zest of the lemons, balsamic vinegar, salt, pepper, and white pepper to a food processor.
  • Step 5
  • Note: Minced garlic in a jar from your local grocery store works great and saves time. Using jarred garlic is preferred as it has less bite than fresh garlic.
  • Step 6
  • Process the ingredients until a paste is formed.
  • Step 7
  • Note: You may have to scrape the sides of the container occasionally to get an even paste like mixture.
  • Step 8
  • Using a micro planar, grate the Asiago cheese and add to the food processor.
  • Step 9
  • Note: Parmesan or Romano cheese work just as well as Asiago. The slightly higher moisture content of Asiago makes for a creamier end product with a smoother flavor.
  • Step 10
  • Process the ingredients until a paste is formed.
  • Step 11
  • Note: You may have to scrape the sides of the container occasionally to get an even paste like mixture.
  • Step 12
  • While food processor is running, add the olive oil.
  • Step 13
  • Note: you can add more or less olive oil as necessary to reach your desired consistency for the pesto.
  • Step 14
  • Serve and enjoy. This can be used on pasta, sandwiches, salads, or anything else you want.
  • Step 15
  • This recipe makes a large amount of pesto. Pesto can be frozen for later use. A ziplock bag or a nice cube tray work well for this.
