    Avocado, pine nut & basil pesto

    • Preparation time: 10 minutes

    Serves: 4 as a dip or 6 as a pasta sauce


    1 Perfectly Ripe Extra Large Avocado, chopped
    ½ x 25g pack basil
    1 small garlic clove
    2 tbsp extra virgin olive oil
    30g pecorino, finely grated
    1 tbsp lemon juice
    60g pine nuts, toasted


    1. Put all the ingredients apart from 1 tbsp pine nuts in the small bowl of a food processor. Whizz until relatively smooth, scraping down the sides of the bowl if needed. Season.

    2. Stir through the reserved pine nuts and eat as a dip with crudités, spread on crusty bread or use as a pesto for pasta (stirred through with
    a little of the pasta cooking water to loosen).
