Traditional basil, pinenut, and parmesan pesto is delicious and decadent, but it is also pricey and can’t be made year round due to the seasonal ingredients. For me, not being able to eat pesto year round is a real problem; so I make a slightly different version of pesto which is easily adaptable and can be extra nourishing.

- Slowly pour in the olive oil while the processor is running on slow, keeping adding the oil until the pesto is the desired consistency.
- Store pesto in a glass jar in the fridge, it will keep for 4-5 days.
