Horns up and welcome to a brand new episode
of Headbanger’s Kitchen: Keto Essentials.
Today, my friends, I’ve got a delicious high-fat
condiment.
I’m talking about that green monster – it’s
our pesto.
Yep we’re going to be making some pesto at
home and, trust me guys, again when it comes
to store-bought stuff, the fresh stuff you
make at home wins by miles.
Now, there’s a local store in Mumbai I used
to buy fresh pesto from and they used to not
use any parmesan cheese, they had no pine
nuts, because pine nuts are RIDICULOUSLY expensive
in India and they use parsley.
So, what I decided to do today is mix up that
recipe with my own and we’re gonna have a
delicious basil and parsley pesto.
So I’m not claim this to be an authentic recipe
or anything but it’s a keto recipe and it’s
good for us on keto, so let’s go and make
that delicious pesto.
The first thing I’m gonna do is I’m going
to grate a chunk of parmesan cheese because
I’m lazy and this parmesan cheese is kind
of old, so I’m just going to blitz it in my
blitzer.
You can watch it go crazy.
Woooooo Lord!
Anyway, now that the parmesan cheese is grated
I’m gonna add pine nuts and some fresh garlic.
Give that a good blitz together and we’re
on to our next ingredient.
I’m going to add in a huge handful of basil
leaves.
I’m also going to throw in a whole handful
of parsley.
Then I’m going to pour in a quarter cup of
olive oil and then I’m going to blitz all
of that together.
And look at that, I’ve already got my pesto
coming together.
I’m gonna add some more oil to this, so that
it can blend a little smoother and I’m gonna
blitz it once again.
And that’s it, guys, our pesto is pretty much
ready.
Oops!
I forgot to add salt, how silly of me.
Well, don’t make the same mistake I did, add
your salt while you’re blending it.
And that’s it!
Our pesto is done!
That is one incredible green monster, much
like the Hulk and it’s full of deliciousness
and fat.
Anyway, time to taste.
Alright guys, pesto’s not something you normally
taste like this but I’m going to taste it,
what the hell.
Oooooh, that parmesan cheese!
Good olive oil, guys.
You’ve got to use good olive oil in your pesto,
that’s gonna make a world of difference and
this is really just so beautiful, fresh and
delicious – I said delicious again, I can’t
believe it.
Anyway, I hope you enjoyed this recipe, tell
me how you’re going to use this pesto.
I think you could use it on chicken as well,
it would be delicious pesto-covered chicken,
mmmmmmmm, sounds good.
Anyway, give the video a thumbs up, subscribe
to the YouTube channel and I will see you
on the next episode of Headbanger’s Kitchen.
Cheers and keep cooking!
