Basil Parsley Pesto

Blanching the basil is the key to keeping your pesto from browning! Use this delicious pesto on pasta, chicken, steak, fish, tomatoes, and more – so versatile.  I like to make large batches and store in glass jars. I served with beautiful baby tomatoes from the Farmer’s Market!

2 cups organic basil leaves, loosely packed
½ cup organic flat-leaf parsley, loosely packed
½ cup freshly grated Parmesan cheese
¼ cup toasted organic pine nuts
¾ cup organic extra virgin olive oil
1 garlic clove, minced
½ teaspoon sea salt
Freshly ground black pepper

Set aside a water bath - small bowl filled with waterand a large handful of ice

Bring small pot of water to boil and add the basil leaves for 30 seconds to soften.

Remove immediately and plunge leaves into the ice water.

After 30 to 60 seconds, remove the leaves from the ice bath, squeeze out excess water, and place into blender or food processor.

Add the remaining ingredients and puree until smooth.

Store in glass jars in the refrigerator for up to 2 weeks. If you plan on freezing the pesto, don’t add the cheese until you thaw and are ready to use. Makes about 2 cups.


Just got some fresh kale today so I can’t wait to try this. Also going to make the Basil Pesto.


What is everyone using in place of somersweet?


I sent my husband out for the kale. Twice he came back with the curly one. 🤦First chopped then full leaf. Oh well I’m still gonna try and make it 🤷
