  • Preparation 10 MIN
  • Makes Makes 3 cups (750 ml)

  1. In the bowl of a food processor, chop the garlic, pumpkin seeds and cheese. Add the basil and chop. With the machine running, slowly drizzle in the oil and mix until smooth. Season with salt.

Pesto freezes very well. To keep in the refrigerator or freezer, cover with a thin layer of oil. This prevents it from changing colour.
