Pesto varieties

Quantity: 200 grams

Complexity: easy

Working time: 15 min

Total preparation: 15 min


  • 2 cloves of garlic

  • 50 g cashew nuts
    or almonds
    or pine nuts

  • 50 g fresh basil leaves
    or flat parsley leaves
    or arugula

  • 2 tbsp grated Parmesan cheese

  • 5 tbsp extra virgin olive oil (or a little more)

  • some salt and pepper


    Take the hand blender with the mixing bowl or a food processor with a blade.
    Peel the garlic and chop coarsely.
    Throw the garlic, nuts, greens, cheese and oil, some salt and pepper into the mixer bowl and mix into a nice, homogeneous, thick, creamy sauce.
    Taste and add where you taste or see deficiencies.
    I mainly cook based on feeling, sight and taste.

    Very tasty with pasta or on a brown sandwich with cheese or on a freshly baked warm baguette!
