Purple Basil Pesto

Difficulty: Intermediate

Ingredients:

STORING

Can be substituted into any recipe calling for green basil microgreens for a burst of colour

Method:

  1. Add the basil leaves, parmesan cheese, minced garlic, lemon zest, pine nuts, lemon juice and, if using, red pepper flakes to a blender or food processor.
  2. Blend continuously until the ingredients start to breakdown. If you prefer a coarser pesto, use the pulse setting.
  3. Stream in the olive oil and allow the ingredients to emulsify with the oil.
  4. You want to continue processing until the oil is combined with the basil and your other ingredients. Taste the pesto, add additional garlic or parmesan to preference.
