(NC) - Served with chicken, fish, crostini or even pasta, this pesto is versatile and nutritious. Use raw peanuts for a fresh accent, or toasted peanuts for a richer flavour.
In a food processor, pulse peanuts 4-5 times. Add basil and garlic and pulse for 1 minute. (TIP: Instead of a food processor, you can use a mortar and pestle, or finely chop ingredients by hand and combine.)
Add Parmesan, oil and lemon juice; process until combined. The finished pesto should contain visible chunks of peanuts. Serve immediately, or store pesto in an airtight container in the fridge until ready to serve.
