The contents of my kitchen is buried in boxes, matting, carefully described and I’m not going to unpack it, unless it’s in Berlin ( it took me three days to hide the apartment into boxes). The only things left were blender, a plate and a knife. We had to eat something, so Ive started to think about something easy and fun, and I reminded myself about a recipe for pesto from Agata’s blog, which does not require too many dishes and equipments. Anne, who helped us to sort clothes, mostly by laughing at them (so far I had no heart to get rid of my jacket purchased 3 years ago in China or shirt from Bolivia), accepted we’ve started the preparations. Ok, it sounds like a big cooking. The whole truth is that one was standing in front of the blender, and the other was watching the first one.
Pesto came out great, in fact it has recommended in such a wonderful way by Agata, that it could not be other wise. By the way, I love to read introductions to the recipes, on blogs and in books. It allows me to figure out not only whether the recipe is good, but also gives a picture of it’s creator. And the most wonderful meal should be made with heart.
Our pesto was full of feelings. These positive, because we spent a great time together with Anna, but also less happy, because in a day it won’t be that easy to drop to my place for a breakfast. That’s why we’d like to present the last breakfast prepared in Amsterdam (at least for some time), in the apartment, where the blog and the first meals were being made. I hope that Berlin will be “tasty” as well :)
You will need:
- big handful of fresh basil leafs
- 1/3 cup olive oil
- 3 tsp parmesan
- pinch of salt and pepper
- 3 garlic cloves
- few nuts
Transfer all ingredients to the blender and blend until a smooth paste appears.
Our pesto was served on a toaster on a frying pan dread, with mozzarella and a roasted beef. And for a drink we’ve made a mango shake with a bit of a milk and yoghurt.
