Recipe: Pistachio pesto



We got a lot of basil in our farm box this week. Time for pesto!


  • 2 cups fresh basil leaves
  • 1/3 cup shelled pistachios
  • 1/3 cup grated Asiago
  • 1/3 cup olive oil
  • 2 cloves garlic, peeled
  • 1/4 teaspoon salt


Mix all ingredients in a blender or food processor until a thick paste.  Refrigerate for up to a week. Great with pasta, spread on bread, or mixed with white beans for a veggie dip. Makes about 1 cup.
