Tip

Adapted from a Donna Hay recipe in the sunday style magazine.  I added more parmesan and mint for a different texture and flavour.

This pesto is perfect over meat or fish, either before or after cooking.  Also great tossed through a pasta dish.

Use yeast flakes instead of parmesan if dairy-free.
