Ingredients

TRADITIONAL PESTO IS A BLEND OF FRESH BASIL, GARLIC, PINE NUTS, EXTRA-VIRGIN OLIVE OIL, AND PARMESAN CHEESE. WITH A FOOD PROCESSOR, IT COMES TOGETHER IN JUST A FEW STEPS:

Preparation

Pulse the nuts, lemon juice, and garlic in the food processor until they’re finely chopped.


Add the basil and pulse again.


Next, drizzle in the olive oil with the food processor blade still running.


Finally, add grated Parmesan cheese and process briefly until combined. For vegan pesto, simply skip the cheese.
