Method

O Hanlon Herbs Lime Basil lifts the traditional pesto recipe to new heights.

Peel the garlic. Pound to a paste in a pestle and mortar with a pinch of sea salt. Add the O Hanlon Herbs Lime Basil leaves, then bash to a paste. Add the pine nuts to the mixture and bash again. Add in the Parmesan or strong cheddar. Pour in a little oil and stir to combine all ingredients. Only add enough oil to create a thick but smooth consistency.

Alternatively, you can add the ingredients in a food processor one by one and blend until a fine smooth consistency.
