Make nut-free pesto that’s suitable for nut allergy sufferers so the whole family can enjoy it. It’s ready in minutes, made with lemon juice and breadcrumbs. This pesto is made with classic ingredients including Parmesan cheese, basil and olive oil, so it’s just as delicious as traditional pesto, but with no pine nuts. Serve with pasta, or drizzle over a salad or pizza.

50g bunches basil, leaves only
1 small garlic clove
35g Parmesan cheese, finely grated
zest and juice ¼ lemon
60ml extra virgin olive oil
60ml rapeseed oil

Toast the bread until golden, allow to cool then whizz into crumbs in a food processor. Add the remaining ingredients and some salt and pepper and pulse until combined.
