    This is a simple and easily modified recipe. I only had roughly equal ingredients to make 1/3 quantity and it tasted great. Thank you.

    This pesto tasted good with a great texture. I too made a half quantity and used a garlic clove as I didn't have any garlic oil. I should have read the other comment first! Next time I will use less lemon juice as well as it was a little too acidic for my taste.

  • A good recipe to use up

    A good recipe to use up rocket. I used half the quantities as it was all I had but instead of garlic oil I added a clove of garlic (forgetting I halved the recipe, I should have only used half a clove as it is very garlicky). I didn't have any basil and I think it would have been nicer with it as per the recipe. I found I was happy with the consistency after the first 5 secs and didn't need to take it further.
