Ingredients: My Simple Pesto Recipe

  • 3 cups packed Fresh Basil, leaf and stems (8 ounces by weight ) approximately 3 cups packed
  • 15 ounces Extra virgin olive oil
  • 2 1/2 cups Parmesan cheese, fresh grated (not processed)
  • 3 cloves Garlic
  • 1/2 tsp Kosher salt or Sea salt (Do not use table salt/ Iodized salt for cooking or for consumption)
  • Equipment Needed:
  • 1 dry cup measure
  • 1 cup liquid measure
  • 1 Tablespoon measure
  • 1/2 Teaspoon measure
  • 1 Collander/Strainer
  • Optional: small scale (for weighing basil)
  • Food processor or blender

How to Make My Simple Pesto Recipe

If you have prepared the ingredients needed, now time to start cooking. There are 9 steps you must follow to make My Simple Pesto Recipe in your home by yourself.

    Step 1
  • Wash Basil in sink and drain with Collander/ Strainer
  • Step 2
  • Place in food processor (or blender) in order; garlic cloves, basil, parmesan cheese, 1/2 the olive oil, then pulse
  • Step 3
  • Slowly add rest of olive oil while pulsing
  • Step 4
  • Keep pulsing until wet sand consistency, should be uniform in size and texture.
  • Step 5
  • Taste, add 1/2 tsp of kosher salt if needed, never use table salt as it should never be used for cooking, or consumption in my opinion.
  • Step 6
  • Store in refrigerator (will last at least 1 week - can be frozen if making larger batches).
  • Step 7
  • Put away food and wash equipment and let dry
  • Step 8
  • Mix or add to favorite foods for fun twists (Great on; pasta, pizza, in sauces, hummus, salad dressing, dips, mayonnaise, potato salad, gnocchi)
  • Step 9
  • Note: I have used both a food processor and a good blender (Ninja) both worked for me. It is important to put the cheese on top of the basil to help hold down the basil for a smoother and consistent texture through out.
