fresh and tasty...


I had a big bunch of fragrant basil that needed using up today...after rest time we grated 1/3 cup of parmesan, chopped a large bunch of basil, crushed some garlic, opened a packed of raw cashew nuts and placed it all in my new mini blender.
Slowly whizzed...added olive oil and together we stood at the kitchen bench munching away on
 crackers and crunchy cashew, parmesan and basil dip.


No preservative or anything nasty added - just fresh and tasty ingredients for the 2 of us and my growing baby bump...

Hi Angela,

the little blender is a Mistral from Target ... it's only a mini one (but is very strong)!

So fresh! We did basil pesto yesterday from our garden and little e eats it straight from the herb patch! Yummy idea with cashews. I'm sure even your pea in the pod would have loved it :) X
