No Nut Pesto!

A simple pesto can really be the kitchen hero. It makes a great dip, a heavenly pasta sauce, a wonderful sandwich condiment and so much more. This no-nut version can be quickly whipped up using our stick blender. Made using a Panasonic stick blender.


  • 2 cups of basil leaves
  • 3 garlic cloves
  • 125 g fresh parmesan
  • 200 mml extra virgin olive oil
  • If you really prefer traditional pesto simply add 50g pinenuts to the mixture prior to blending.


  • Place the ingredients in the stick blender bowl and process until the mixture reaches desired texture.
