A few months back my parents brought over some homemade pesto that I just threw in the freezer for a rainy day. You know the freezer aka black hole. Well couple weeks ago I decided to clean the black hole and came across the frozen pesto. The next night I decided to cook dinner with it and it was amazing. For now on I’m going keep frozen pesto in my freezer unless of course I have the time to make fresh pesto.
What you’ll need –
2 cups of Fresh Basil
2 garlic Cloves
2/3 cup olive oil
Some salt and pepper
Your process –
1. Combine Garlic, Basil and small amount of salt in food processor and pulse until course.
2. Turn food processor on and slowly add olive oil until smooth creamy like texture.
Use immediately in your favorite recipe or place in a well sealable container and freeze.
You’ll notice there’s no cheese in the recipe. I would recommend adding the cheese at the time you’re using the pesto in your recipe. That way you can add as much or as little as you like.
