Recipe: Deidra Henry’s Pesto

Basil pesto: Just one of our January Foodie’s favorite things.
Recipe: Basil Pesto


  • 2 cups Annabelle’s Garden local basil
  • 2 cloves garlic
  • ¼ cup grated parmesan cheese
  • ½ cup nuts, preferably pine nuts or walnuts
  • ½ cup olive oil
  • ¼ teaspoon kosher salt


Combine all ingredients into a blender or food processor, and pulse until fine. For a rustic texture, chop basil, garlic, and nuts by hand, then combine with rest of ingredients in a bowl and stir to combine. For variety in flavor, consider substituting kale, swiss chard, or collard greens for basil.
