Vegan pesto


Have guests over tonight,  so I made up a batch of Pesto up. I added hemp seed to this for the Omega oils.

Ingredients :

1 30g pack of fresh basil leaves
3 cloves of Garlic
10 g hemp seeds
150g pine nuts
45g flaked almonds
45g pumpkin seeds
175ml olive oil
1tbsp lemon juice
Salt and pepper to taste

Blitz the basil, garlic and hemp seeds first in a blender, then once well mixed, start adding the other ingredients in small batches. Continue to blitz until most of the ingredients are well blended together. I like to leave a portion of the pine nuts to last so there are a few roughly chopped pieces throught it for a satisfying texture .
