Homemade pesto

Been busy lately trying to make the most of the fresh food I have a bought and the herbs I have grown.

This is my version of oregano pesto.DSCF7524

A handful of hazel nuts, or nuts of your choice.

A bunch of baby celery leaves

2 tablespoons of good olive oil

1 tablespoon of grated Parmesan

1 chopped clove of garlic

1 cup of fresh oregano leaves

2 sun dried tomatoes,(I use jar ones in garlic oil )

Method

I use a nutribullet, to grind nuts first.

then add rest of ingredients, keep pulsing till combined, you may have to open the lid and give it a stir now and again.

Add more oil if needed.

You can freeze left overs in a freezer tray.

You can use any herbs you like, I usually use basil, but had loads of oregano in the garden.
