Sweet potato gnocchi



50g Brussels sprouts 40g fresh basil 50g walnuts 2 tbsp fresh lemon juice, to taste 120ml extra virgin olive oil 50g Parmesan, finely grated


Step 1:

Cook the Brussels sprouts in simmering water for 3 minutes or until just tender. Drain and run under cold water to cool.

Step 2:

Place all the ingredients (except for the Parmesan and olive oil) in a food processor, and blitz into a rough paste. Add the lemon juice, oil and Parmesan gradually, one at a time, until you’re happy with the consistency and flavour. Season to taste.


Leftover pesto can be kept in fridge for up to 1 week if you cover with olive oil or cling film, or frozen for up to 3 months.
