- Bunch of fresh basil leaves
- Parsley leaves
- Handful of peanuts
- Olive oil (it depends on the consistency you want)
- Cloves of garlic (I like it very garlicky, but it depends on your palette)
- Lemon juice
- A pinch of sea salt and black pepper
- Lots of Parmesan cheese
Separate the basil and parsley leaves from the stalk, and dump into the blender.
Add a little olive oil, the garlic, peanuts and salt/pepper.
Blend till the leaves break down and everything has emulsified with the oil.
Empty into a bowl and add more olive oil and stir.
Add some lemon juice that gives it a little tang.
I normally just add a couple of tablespoons to a pan with spaghetti and even throw in some sun-dried tomatoes. It also tastes amazing by spreading some on toast.
