Boris home made pesto..#83

Boris wanna make his favorite lunch today,mozzarella,tomato,cucumber and home made pesto.
This morning he asked me how to make pesto,do we have the ingredients...Lets see..Yes we have pine nuts,we have Grana padano cheese,we have oil,we have garlic and we have fresh basil..(add pepper and sea salt to taste) Ok put all the ingredients in the blender and mix well.While blending, add some olive oil and keep on mixing.Put it in a jar and store it in the fridge till lunchtime.
Do the pesto on a sandwich with some mozzarella,cucumber,tomato add a pinch of salt to taste and enjoy...

By the way look at those little fellas while eating a sandwich...it's so cute to see...

  1. Each summer, we grow a lot of basil and then cut it at the end of the summer to make into batches of pesto to use throughout the year. This year, I tried my hand at making a mint pesto as a meat marinade to brush on grilled meat.

    The bunnies are adorable.


  2. Velva thanks, ...the mint pesto sounds good..were do you store the pesto?..greetzz

  4. I love seeing him in the kitchen - so great that he's interested and curious! You're a good dad and that pesto is perfect!

  5. I have never been able to grow basil so never had enough to make pesto!
    That is so great that you guys hang out in the kitchen together :)
    By the way, my friend in Amersfoort sent me a Dutch link to a split pea soup and I made it after Google translated it! Hopefully did not lose anything in translation :)
