We grow basil in the greenhouse each year and this is a great way of using it.
The macadamias have such a lovely, buttery taste and of course are excellent for you.
Like many recipes you have to constantly taste and adjust amounts to achieve the required consistency and flavour.
1/2 cup macadamias
2 garlic cloves
Around 1/4 – 1/2 cup olive oil
Large bunch of basil
Salt and pepper to taste
Whiz up the macadamias (we use the small grinder attachment on our processor) and two cloves of garlic until finely chopped. Add to the processor along with some of the olive oil.
