The more garlic, the better! you can put this on any dish including gluten-free bacon roasted chicken.
Handful of pine nuts
3 cloves of garlic, depending on taste
Salt & freshly ground black pepper
3 handfuls of fresh basil, chopped
Drop or two of lemon juice to taste
1. Brown half of the pine nuts on a dry pan
2. Stick all the ingredients in a blender and blitz it up. If you prefer a more rustic pesto, grind the garlic with the basil leaves and salt in a pestle and mortar, remove, then mash in the pine nuts. Mix with olive oil.
3. Adjust the flavor of your dairy-free pesto by adding a drop or two at a time of lemon juice.
Voila! Gluten-free, dairy-free pesto for spreading on sarnies, stirring into pasta, or even rubbing on yourself, if that’s what strikes your fancy!
