Pesto is not used very often in my kitchen and if so it's store bought. Now and then I try a version of my own and this time I had parsley, cashews and a very good, mild and fruity olive oil. Look at the bright green colour of the olive oil!
Turned out really well. I totally love parsley.
- 1/4 cup olive oil
- 3/4 cup cashews (unsalted)
- bunch parsley
Then mix parsley, roasted cashew nuts and olive oil in a food processor or with a handheld blender until you have smooth and creamy pesto.
You can use it to for pasta (mix with a little hot cooking water from your pasta pot) or use a little for sandwiches.
