Thai Basil and Macadamia Nut Pesto Recipe
Prep time
Total time
Thai basil pesto with macadamia nuts is my original twist from the Italian pesto!
Recipe type: Sauce
Cuisine: fusion
Serves: 2 servings
  • 1 cup Thai basil - pack the leaves in
  • 1-2 cloves garlic
  • ⅛ cup macadamia nuts - I used a bit more than that. I have a quarter cup measure and filled it to ¾
  • ⅛ cup parmesan reggiano - freshly grated
  • ¼ extra virgin olive oil
  • salt & pepper to taste
  1. ]Throw everything in a blender and blend.
I boiled about ¾ lb. of pasta and it was a perfect amount of pesto. It's best eaten right away. Fresh is best!
