Delicious Low Fat Pesto
I found this pesto recipe in the book written by Oprah's chef, Rosie. It's called In the Kitchen With Rosie and I recommend almost everything in the book. This pesto has no oil but I don't miss it. Especially since I love lemon which is the substitute for the oil typically found in pesto. Try it!
1 1/2 cups fresh basil
Put basil, garlic, pine nuts and Parmesan cheese in blender or food processor. Turn machine on and drizzle in the lemon juice. Continue to puree until a smooth paste is formed.
Makes ¾ cup pesto
*The amount of garlic you use is a matter of personal taste. Also, some garlic is more pungent. So start perhaps with 2 medium cloves then taste, and add more if you like a strong garlicky flavor.
