This is Andrew’s first attempt at making pesto, and it all got eaten in one sitting!  (Admittedly, there were four people sharing it.)

Ingredients — amounts are imprecise

  • Lots of fresh Basil, chopped
  • Lots of Pine nuts
  • Pumpkin seeds
  • Lots of Cashew nuts
  • Fresh Rocket, chopped
  • Cheshire flavour “Sheese”
  • Olive oil infused with garlic and thyme
  • Tiny bit of Cider vinegar
  • A little fresh peppermint, chopped

  • Pepper


  1. Blend all the ingredients together with an electric hand blender or food processor.
  2. Sprinkle extra pine nuts on top with ground black pepper to garnish.
