About this recipe:Homegrown herbs are the star of this pesto, I use the predominant flavour of rocket with a background hint of basil, parsley and chives. This pesto also contains no cheese so it is good for lactose intolerant people and makes it lower in fat. I add cashew nuts and loads of garlic to give it a lovely pungent flavour. The cashew nuts are also more cost effective than pine nuts.
Very simple to make, very tasty and above all an extremely versatile 'food' to have to hand. I put mine in an airtight jar and it has kept beautifully in the fridge for 3 weeks now.
I added some pecorino cheese (I can't tolerate cow dairy) but Parmesan would work just as well. - 14 Apr 2012
