Serves: 4

1tbsp Water

50g Parmesan, grated

2 Garlic Cloves

50g Cashew Nuts

Grated Rind of 1 Lemon

150ml Extra Virgin Olive Oil

A Generous Grating of Nutmeg

Blitzed together in less than five minutes, this cheat’s pesto uses cashews instead of pine nuts as a cheaper, easier-to-get-hold-of substitute. I promise no one will know the difference.
