Parsley Pesto

January 11, 2015

Late last year I had a glut of parsley in my vege garden. It was big and bushy and starting to go to seed and it was time for it to go to the compost heap. But before pulling it all out I wanted to rescue as much as I could and put it to good use.

I pulled out one of my favourite cookbooks 'River Cottage Everyday' to find Hugh's wonderful parsley and pumpkin seed pesto recipe and set to work.

After a few batches of pumpkin seed I threw in some walnuts.

This recipe has become quite a favourite in our house and the pumpkin seed version is perfect for sharing with kids in early childhood education as its nut free.

My friend Michelle from Munch thought it was so good she shared the recipe in her recent blog post.

 

Parsley and Pumpkin Seed Pesto

Prep time: 5 mins
Total time: 5 mins

Makes: 1-2 cups

Ingredients

75g shelled walnuts/pumpkin seeds
1 garlic clove, roughly chopped
50g parsley leaves
175 ml rapeseed or extra virgin olive oil
Juice of ½ lemon
Sea salt & ground pepper to taste
50g Parmesan cheese, grated

Method

Put the nuts/seeds, parsley garlic and lemon juice in a food processor and give it a good blitz.

With the food processor going pour in the oil until you reach your preferred consistency.

Pour into a bowl and add the cheese and season to taste. It will keep in the fridge in a jar, covered in olive oil for a couple of weeks or alternatively it can be frozen for use at a later date. If freezing add the cheese and seasoning once defrosted.
