This pesto recipe is made with tomatoes and chilli, which gives it a wonderful kick and vibrant colour.

Or, see our classic green pesto.

Ingredients

  • 1 garlic clove
  • Pinch of sea salt
  • 25g pine nuts
  • 260g semi-dried tomatoes in oil, drained
  • 1 red chilli, deseeded and roughly chopped
  • Handful fresh flatleaf parsley
  • 125ml extra-virgin olive oil
  • 25g Parmesan, finely grated

Method

  1. Put the garlic and sea salt into the bowl of a small food processor and pulse.
  2. Add the pine nuts and pulse again until roughly chopped (be careful not to over-process). Add the semi-dried tomatoes, chilli and flatleaf parsley and pulse carefully until well mixed but still very textured.
  3. Turn into a bowl and stir through the extra-virgin olive oil and Parmesan until you have a juicy paste, seasoning to taste as you go.
