Almonds give our pesto an extra flavor dimension. We load in garlic and an Asiago -Parmesan cheese blend for that classic taste.


  1. Place garlic in bowl of food processor with the basil leaves.

  2. Process until blended.

  3. Add lemon juice and a bit more olive oil. Process to incorporate.

  4. Add toasted almonds and process until blended.

  5. Add cheese and a bit more olive oil.

  6. Process until blended.

  7. Taste test!

  8. Add more garlic, cheese blend and almonds to taste.


You can substitute roasted pine nuts for the almonds.


We are a super fan of garlic so we load in the garlic and go easy on the oil. The ingredient list below is for minimum amounts for your pesto. Love garlic? add more! Love cheese? Load in more!
