Did you know that mint pesto is absolutely delicious?!
I didn't know that until last night. But now I'm in on the secret. It was so tasty and refreshing... something altogether different from basil pesto. You definitely should try it sometime.
1 generous bunch/packet of fresh mint leaves, pulled off the stalk
Juice of 1 lemon
1 heaping tsp dijon mustard
3 heaping Tablespoons ground almonds
1/2 tsp salt, more to taste
Olive oil - approx 1/3 cup
1/4 ground parmesan cheese
Place all ingredients into a food processor or blender, and blend until smooth. The amount of olive oil needed will depend on how much mint is used. I just keep pouring it in until I get a nice consistency. You can always substitute some of the oil for a bit of water, if you're concerned about the calories : )
