Ingredients

bunch of asparagus (250 g),20 g basil leaves (1 cup),5 g mint leaves (1/4 cup),30 g cashew nuts (1/4 cup),25 g finely grated parmesan cheese (1 cup),4 tablespoons rapeseed or olive oil,2 tablespoons lemon juice (roughly half a lemon),wholemeal pizza dough,mozzarella,spring onions peashoots and parmesan to top

Instructions

Preheat the oven to 225º (437ºF). I use a fan oven so you may need to set your oven a little hotter! Place a pizza stone in the oven as it heats up (or a baking tray if you don't have one).
Prepare the asparagus. Snap off the woody ends and chop into pieces. Reserve the tips and place the rest into the food processor along with the basil and mint leaves, cashews, parmesan, oil and lemon juice. Blitz until smooth and well combined.
Roll out the pizza dough and place on the preheated pizza stone. Spread with about 1/2 cup of pesto and top with the asparagus tips, some chopped spring onions and a sliced ball of mozzarella.
Bake in the preheated oven for 10-12 minutes until golden brown and bubbling. Serve topped with peashoots and shaved parmesan, if liked.


Basil Pesto

INGREDIENTS

2 Cups Fresh Basil Leaves- Packed, 1/4 Cup Lightly Toasted Pine Nuts, 2 Large Garlic Cloves, 1/2 Cup Grated Parmesan or Romano Cheese, 1/2 Cup Extra Virgin Olive Oil

INSTRUCTIONS

Place all the ingredients in a food processor except the oil, and pulse. Start to add in the oil slowly, pulsing continuously until you have a smooth paste. Use immediately to top any pasta dish. (If you do not plan to use it right away, store in a container with an additional layer of olive oil on top to prevent discoloration.)

KALE CHIPS

Kale chips are addicting and healthy. Kids even love this recipe. They are versatile – change it up by adding your favorite spices. Don’t crowd the sheet or put too much olive oil or lemon juice on them. They will end up steaming and not be as crispy
