Parsley and Pumpkin Seed pesto

A traditional pesto is made with basil, pine nuts and parmesan cheese. There are however other herbs and nuts you can use as well, so get creative!

Ingredients:

  • 20gr fresh parsley
  • 15gr fresh basil
  • 1 garlic clove
  • 80gr pumpkin seeds
  • 75gr sunflower oil (not ml, gram)
  • 15gr parmesan cheese, grated
  • lemon juice to taste
  • salt/pepper

Recipe:

Place the parsley, basil, roughly chopped garlic, pumpkin seeds and two thirds of the oil in a kitchen machine. I use the small one that attaches to my immersion blender, as a regular kitchen machine is too big. Blend until smooth. Use the remaining oil if required.
Stir the parmesan cheese and lemon juice in. You can store leftovers in a jar in the fridge, with a thin layer of oil over the top.
