Basil & Chive Pesto

deck 4I love basil.  Caprese salads are my favourite with tomato, bocconcini and fresh basil.  For this reason I am growing basil and tomato’s.  Recently the basil plants were a bit out of control, and the chive plant needed a hair cut badly.  So I made Basil & Chive pesto.





1 1/2 cups of packed fresh basil

1/2 cup of chives

3 cloves of garlic

1/4 cup grated parmesan cheese

1/4 cup extra virgin olive oil

2 tablespoons pine nuts


Combine all ingredients in a food processor or blender, and blend to a smooth paste.  You can use ice-cube trays to freeze what you aren’t going to eat any time soon.

It doesn’t look like much but it’s very tasty.

Keep chopping, growing and creating.
