Servings: 4

Ingredients

mixed basil pesto

  • 1 lemon juice only
  • 2 cloves garlic
  • 200 g fresh basil as many kinds as you can get
  • 100 ml cold-pressed oil

Instructions

for the pesto

  • Juice the lemon into a small bowl and crush in the garlic. Set aside to cure for 20 minutes.
  • Put the basil and lemon-cured garlic in a food processor and blend to break down the leaves. Drizzle in enough olive oil to make a loose paste, scraping down as necessary (you might need more or less oil).
  • Season well – this is really important to bring out the flavours of the basil.
