Basil and pine nut dressing

I made this dressing to go over a steak, but I think you could put it inside a chicken breast or maybe even through rice  with some crispy smoked bacon to make a sort of pesto rice.



  • A massive handful of basil
  • 4 tablespoons of pine nuts
  • 3 tablespoons of Olive Oil (best quality you can get)
  • Freshly ground pepper
  • Water


  1. Lightly toast the pine nuts in a dry frying pan
  2. Get a jug and add the basil, toasted pine nuts and oil
  3. Use a stick blender and blender to a paste
  4. Add some freshly ground pepper
  5. Add water and continue to blend until the dressing is the desired consistency
