How to Make Homemade Artichoke Pesto
- In a small non stick pan, toast pine nuts on medium heat. Shake the pan a few times until they are lightly browned. Watch them...they can turn bitter If you walk away and burn them. Only takes a few minutes to toast them.
- Using a food processor, add all of the ingredients. Pulse until well blended. TASTE! Start with the smallest amount, 1 tsp POWDERED garlic powder, and maybe 1 tbsp ROASTED garlic. You can always add more! I like a lot of garlic. Other people not so much.
- Be mindful and cautious if adding salt and pepper.....especially if you are adding this to other foods that may already have salt and pepper added! I didn't add any salt or pepper to this pesto.
