Nettle-Basil Pesto

My garden is overflowing with basil, as well as nettles; and both go great together in this pesto.


1 cup fresh nettle leaves

1 cup fresh basil

1/2 cup parmesan cheese

1/4 cup pine nuts

2/3 cup olive oil

1-2 cloves garlic

Salt and fresh cracked pepper

Add nettles, basil, pine nuts, and garlic to a food processor and pulse. Add in olive oil and blend. Remove nettle/basil mixture, and place in a bowl. Fold in the cheese and season with salt and pepper.

Serve with pasta, on crackers, or use as a dip for cut veggies.
