Day 83 Parsley Pesto

Parsley Pesto

Most pesto sauces are very similar to make, but have variations in the ingredients.  In January, I showed an Arugula Pesto.

1 Bunch Parsley, cut into thirds
4 Cloves Garlic, sliced into quarters
1/2 Cup Pine Nuts
2 Tablespoons Nutritional Yeast
1/4 Water
Juice of 1 Lemon
Salt and Pepper to taste
Hazelnut Oil
Before adding the oil

Place all ingredients except the oil in a food processor fitted with a steel cutting blade.  Process to combine.  Slowly add the oil through the feed tube while the processor is running.  The amount of oil will depend on your use.  For a pasta sauce, the pesto should be thick.  To use as a pizza sauce or sandwich spread it will need to be creamy.  Makes enough for 2 pizzas.

Goes will with pizza.
