Basil, Rocket & Pistachio Pesto

January 27, 2021 1 min read

One of the best things about my weekly visit to the Byron Farmers Market is getting inspiration for new recipes from whatever fresh produce happens to be available that day. Whenever I find fresh basil bunches and peppery rocket I find myself making a pesto of some sorts. This is a favourite recipe but you can use whatever nuts you prefer and add more chilli if you like it hotter! - Lorna Garden, Shackpalace
