I know it is not typical to add green onions to pesto sauce but trust me, this is a game changer! It makes the pesto bold and sharp – do not be scared to try it!

Prep Time 15 mins Total Time 15 mins Difficulty: Beginner Servings: 1 Best Season: Suitable throughout the year



  1. IMPORTANT: always check if your ingredients are fresh, stale garlic, almonds or cheese may ruin your pesto.

  2. First you need to chop all the ingredients first. Pay special attention to basil and try to chop it as finely as possible. The reason is that if you over process fresh basil it will become bitter. The same thing happens with olive oil. Chopping ingredients before adding them to the food processor will help to reduce the bitterness.

  3. In a small food processor add almonds, garlic cloves, green onions, parsley and pour in a vegetable oil. Pulse until smooth.

  4. Next add  basil, lemon juice and grated cheese. Pulse, BUT be careful. When you add basil to the mix do not blend it for a very long time. Just until you realize that your sauce is smooth.

  5. Next transfer your paste to a jar and pour in olive oil. Use spoon to stir in and do not use a food processor. Add salt and pepper to taste. You can add more lemon juice if necessary.

  6. Transfer your pesto to small jars and store in the fridge for up to a week.
