Lemon, Basil, Rocket & Macadamia Pesto



0 portion(s)


  • 60 grams fresh basil
  • 60 grams Fresh Rocket (Arugula)
  • 60 grams fresh lemon juice
  • 100 grams salted macadamias
  • 100 grams Parmedan Cheese
  • 100 grams Sour Cream or Greek Yoghurt
  • 1 clove garlic
  • salt and pepper to taste

Recipe's preparation

  1. Place garlic and parmesan into TM bowl and chop for 9 seconds on speed 9.

    Add all other ingredients and mix for 10 - 15 seconds on speed 5 or until desired consistency is achieved. For a courser dip process for less time.



This pesto is very versatile. It needs to be punchy so put in plenty of lemon juice and salt to taste.

It can be used as a dip, a salad dressing, as a spread on a pizza, as a marinade on grilled chicken....or my latest idea of using it as a variation of the veloute sauce in the Chicken Veloute recipe.

Really the options are endless!!!!

This can be frozen too for later use.
