Rocket Pesto
 
A peppery alternative to Basil Pesto. It can an be used on pasta, in a mayonnaise for a dip or in a soup for added flavour.
Ingredients
  • 1 Garlic Clove (small)
  • Pinch of sea salt
  • 25 g pine nuts, lightly toasted
  • 50 g Wild Rocket
  • 25 g Parmesan, finely grated
  • Juice of ½ lemon
  • 125 ml extra-virgin olive oil
Instructions
  1. Put the garlic and salt into the bowl of a small food processor and pulse or a pestle and mortar and pound
  2. Add the pine nuts and pulse until roughly chopped (be careful not to over-process). Add the rocket and pulse carefully until it is well mixed, but still very textured.
  3. Turn out into a bowl and stir through the Parmesan and lemon juice. Pour in the olive oil and mix well until you have a juicy paste, seasoning to taste as you go.
  4. Keep in a tight lidded jar
