Walnut pesto

For the foodblogswop March (foodies make recipes from each others blog), I was linked to the blog Food Style by weight consultant Kim van der Wel (yes Kim, here it is;)). On her blog you find delicious and super healthy dishes and snacks for every moment of the day. It’s a Dutch blog, but I’m more than happy to share one of her recipes with you in English.

Walnut pesto from scratch

I chose a pesto recipe. This naturally fits right up my alley, since I prefer everything from scratch. By using walnuts instead of the usual pine nuts, I gave it a slightly different spin. Voila walnut pesto!

Walnut pesto

Ingredients

  • 50 grams of basil leaves
  • 1 clove garlic
  • 50 grams of walnuts
  • coarse sea salt
  • pepper
  • 50 grams of Parmesan cheese
  • 1/2 cup extra virgin olive oil

Instructions

  • Toast the walnuts short and let them cool.
  • Grate the Parmesan cheese.
  • Put all the ingredients + a little bit olive oil in a food processor and blend until it becomes smooth.
  • Add olive oil until you have the desired substance (one full cup makes the pesto quite thin).
  • Add sea salt and a little pepper to taste
    Delicious on bread, pizza and pasta!
