A note on cooking
I encourage you to embrace a freestyle way of cooking, and use this recipe as a guide. Don’t get too caught up in measuring things exactly — you can eyeball most things.

Cooking should be relaxing, unfussy and an opportunity for you to exercise your creativity. Don’t forget to taste as you go along, and use your intuition with flavours.

Trust your instinct, on whether it needs more of this, or more of that — cook to what you like!




    1. Preheat the oven to 180°C
    2. On a baking tray, dry toast the pine nuts for 5–10 minutes in the oven till nicely golden. Keep a close eye on them as they can burn in a jiff.
    3. Once toasted, allow to cool and add to a blender with the rest of the ingredients. Blitz and season to taste.
    4. Store in a jar, in the fridge for up to 2 weeks.
