Recipes for better living

These ate the two recipes I use most. They are both fresh and healthy and easy.

Pesto sauce: buzz together parsley or basil or rocket or a combo of these with pine nuts or walnuts, olive oil and lemon juice. It should be mostly leaves. Great with pasta or gnocchi.

Hummous: buzz a tin of chickpeas with a clove of garlic, half a lemon of lemon juice, two spoons tahini and water to thin to dip consistency. Tahini is a nutty sesame sauce.

Make lots of both, you can keep them in the fridge or freeze them. Not salty or oily like the ones you buy.

They sound great Lal. I love hummus and buy little pots most weeks. Never thought to make.
