Nothing is better than a recipe that is only 2 steps. Basil is very easy to grow in your garden or in containers and a fabulous addition to many meals. This is a great recipe borrowed from the BBC Good Food website


  • 50g pine nuts
  • large bunch of basil
  • 50g parmesan (or vegetarian alternative)
  • 150ml olive oil, plus extra for storing
  • 2 garlic cloves


  1. Heat a small frying pan over a low heat. Cook the pine nuts until golden, shaking occasionally. Put into a food processor with the remaining ingredients and process until smooth, then season.
  2. Pour the pesto into a jar and cover with a little extra oil, then seal and store in the fridge. It will keep in a fridge for up to two weeks
