Chef Bobby's notes
Today I wanted to help people better utilize their herb gardens throughout the year. I prepared three different pesto’s for today and served them on baked baguette with grilled chicken and slow roasted bell peppers. The reason I chose pesto was it is so universal, shelf stable and cheap. Pesto can be served warm or cold, eaten as a snack, served as a pasta sauce, great with all proteins and can be served as a garnish for many different appetizers. We also served today our new reformulated pizzas and the reviews were outstanding (pesto is also great on pizza).
Instead of listing the recipe for each individual pesto I want to give you a skeleton recipe that you can use to make pretty much any pesto. However, today I made a cilantro-walnut pesto, watercress-toasted almond pesto and basil-pine nut pesto.
Makes 3 cups of Pesto
Oil 1 cup
All you will need for this recipe is a food processor or if you have a hand held stick mixer you can use that to. Put everything except for the oil into the processor, turn it on and then add the oil slowly. If you are using a hand held stick mixer go ahead and put the oil in with everything and mix.
Another reason pesto is so great is you can make it your own based on what your favorite oil, nut, herb and seasonings are. A little hint that we do sometimes is use Dijon mustard or citrus juices in them to flavor them as well.
