Trio Basil Pesto

Although, we live in a little condo we still have managed to make an almost complete garden on our 2’8″x 9’1″ porch… Our “Garden” consists of: Lavender, Grape Vines, Thyme, Camomile, Parsley, Chives, Tomatoes, Strawberries, Fig and Avocado Tree, Oregano, Red Bell Peppers, Rosemary and finally 3 different types of Basil (Cinnamon, Lemon and Sweet).

So, I decided to use all 3 types of Basil in this pesto and it turned out so flavorful and delicious!

Ingredients:

1/2 C of each Basil (Cinnamon, Sweet and Lemon)

1/4 C Pine Nuts, toasted

1/3 C Garlic infused Extra Virgin Olive Oil

1/3 C Parmesan Cheese, grated

1 t Pink Himalayan Salt

1/2 t Fresh ground Black Pepper

Directions: Combine all ingredients in a blender or food processor except for the olive oil, as you begin to blend slowly add in the olive oil. Blend to your desired consistency. If you want the pesto smoother add a little more oil.

This pesto is lovely on Crostinis, Pasta or Pizza!
