Pea & Basil Pesto

A good homemade pesto is worth its weight in gold and the addition of some peas makes this one extra good for you. For a quick snack it's wonderful just spread thinly on toast or tossed through vegetables for an extra hit of flavour.

25g frozen peas, defrosted

25g fresh basil, leaves only

5g pine nuts

10g Parmesan

2 tbsp olive oil

1/2 tsp freshly squeezed lemon juice


Place all the ingredients in a food processor and blitz down for 1 minute. Store in a sealed container in the refridgerator to prevent it from discolouring. [Note: add a little more lemon juice or even some garlic if you want to enhance the flavour]
