Making this almond homemade pesto recipe is about as simple as it gets. If you can push a button on a food processor then you can make this recipe.
Add the almonds, basil leaves, cheese, cloves, salt and garlic to a food processor.
Process that mixture until the almonds have broken down and everything is fully mixed.
With the food processor running slowly add the oil. Stop every so often to check the consistency. If you like it dryer and don’t need all the oil then simply leave some out.
After you have a smooth pesto, give it a taste and if needed adjust the salt if desired.
If not using the pesto right away, store in a glass jar in the fridge until ready to use.
