Easy Nut-Free Basil Pesto

Category

Ingredients

 3 cups fresh basil leaves
 3 garlic cloves
  cup grated Parmesan cheese
 2 tsp fresh lemon juice (to taste)
 salt & pepper to taste
Directions
1

Chop garlic (Tip: I use the Garlic Zoom as it chops everything evenly & finely!)

2

In a blender, blend the garlic, basil and parmesan cheese, slowly adding the olive oil while the blender is on until mixture is smooth.

3

Add lemon juice, salt and pepper to taste.

4

If you are not using the fresh pesto right away I would suggest pouring the mixture into ice cube trays and freezing. Then, simply pop the amount needed out whenever you need it.
