How to make it

  • Place sea salt, garlic, and pine nuts in a large mortar and crush with pestle to make a smooth sauce. Add a small ammount of basil leaves and grind against sides of mortar until they break apart.
  • Repeat until all basil leaves are used up and the mixture has formed a coarse paste. Add olive oil and stir until mixture is smooth and creamy.
  • *Ingredients can also be placed in a food processor and combined that way.

    sharky - yes, Pesto may be frozen. Though, before sealing the container(and use smallish containers), place plastic wrap on the surface of the Pesto.

    Cheers!

    In addition to a Vegan Cheese (Parmesan, etc) substitute, a wonderfully good alternative to cheese subs. for pesto recipes is Miso!! It makes for a very tasty Pesto Sauce.
    Give it a whirl!!

    This is great. I am overrun with basil at the moment, so I plan to make pesto this week. Do you know if it can be frozen?
