Words and Herbs

I searched for ages for a recipe for this pesto and was going to give up and try out my own quantities… but then a day later I opened a magazine, and there was exactly what I had been looking for! Sun-dried tomatoes, pine nuts, parmesan and olive oil….


… and it tasted even better than I had imagined!

So here is the recipe, the quantities slightly adapted from the original.

Red Pesto


  • 75g (3 oz) sun-dried tomatoes in oil, drained
  • 100ml (2/5 cup) olive oil, including a little of the oil from your jar of tomatoes
  • 25g (1 oz) grated parmesan cheese
  • 25g (1 oz) pinenuts
  • 1 clove of garlic
  • Black pepper
  • 1/2 – 1 tsp dried thyme

(If you can find sun-dried tomatoes in a herby marinade like I used you can simply add herbs/seasoning to taste afterwards.)

Chop the sun-dried tomatoes roughly. Briefly dry roast the nuts…
