About this recipe: This recipe makes a very tasty, quick and easy pesto with walnuts and sage in place of the pine nuts and basil. We use it on soups and sandwiches. It's ready to use right away but I like to make it a day or two before I need it so the flavour can develop.


Serves: 12 

  • 100g walnuts
  • 60g flat leaf parsley
  • 10g fresh sage leaves
  • 5 cloves garlic, smashed
  • 80ml extra-virgin olive oil, or more to taste
  • 40g grated Pecorino cheese, or more to taste
  • salt and ground black pepper to taste

Prep:15min  ›  Ready in:15min 

  1. Process walnuts, parsley, sage and garlic together in a food processor until coarsely ground. With the food processor still running, slowly stream olive oil into the mixture until completely integrated into a smooth mixture. Add Pecorino cheese, salt and pepper; continue to process until the mixture has the consistency you like.
