small batch basil pistachio pesto


Spring fever. It’s a thing and it’s here. 

Not an illness, thank goodness, but an overwhelming desire to open the windows and watch the curtains billow in the breeze while sipping iced coffee and sitting in the sun spot like a kitten. 

I adore basil and always wanted to love pesto…but never tried it. Basil, nuts, cheese, garlic, what’s not to like? Oh, the oil. I don’t like oily foods. Still, after the success I had with chopsticks and ramen in Calgary, I was willing to try new things. 

Pesto is delicious! 

I have a cute little mini chopper, so I scaled down a recipe to make a small batch of pesto. You should start making this now and keep making it all spring and summer long.
