I would like to thank my partner to grow herbs and vegetables in our little garden every summer for me, Honestly I'm not good on plants or gardening in general.

By the way , when I see the basil grow so fast, I don't want to waste it, So I made pesto with sun-dried tomato, basil,shallot,garlic blended with other ingredients put in the jar and store in the fridge to use as condiments ingredient in my cooking, So don't be surprise if I use this Sun-dried tomato pesto in the next post.




Ingredients :

- 1 cup sun dried tomato
- 2 shallot /chop
- 3 clove garlic
- handful fresh basil
-  2.25 oz / 1/2 cup toasted pine nut
- 1/2 cup grated parmesan cheese
- 1 small can 6 oz tomato paste
- 1/2 cup Exta virgin olive oil
- pinch of salt
- pinch of pepper

Direction :

Put all ingredients except olive oil in small food processor
Drop olive oil while in process until combine and smooth but not too smooth.
