- 2 cloves garlic
- 80 grams pine nuts
- 1 tablespoon rock salt
Place the basil, parmesan cheese and garlic cloves in thermomix bowl. Blend for 15 seconds on speed 8. It will be of smooth consistency.
Add 150mls of olive oil (the more olive oil you add the runnier it will be. It is better for it to be like this when adding to cooked pasta).
I suggest you add oil by your own judgement, if you think it requires more than add more.
Blend again, speed 4 until combined.
Add pine nuts and rock salt. Mix for 15-20 seconds, speed 8.
This will make close to 500g. Scrape out in into a glass jar, add some oil on top to keep.
