Step 1: Grow Some Basil Plants
Step 2: Gather Ingredients
1 cup of loose fresh-cut basil leaves
1 tbsp parmesan cheese
a dash of salt, a dash of pepper
3 peeled and trimmed cloves of garlic
1/4 cup olive oil
Combine everything but the olive oil in your food processor. Do a first chop, to get everything loosely mixed. Enjoy the strong basil smell.
If your mixer can run with the top open (mine doesn't) pour the olive oil slowly into the mixture while running your mixer. I think this will make your pesto more firm, and less liquid, by sort of whipping up your olive oil.
Step 3: Enjoy!
