Parsley-Walnut Pesto

So, it has been a while since I have posted, and I thought I’d start again with a recipe I’ve been wanting to try for years. Now, I’ve had my Cuisinart food processor for a while, but until recently I had not even taken it out of the box. This contraption is the most useful kitchen appliance I can think of! (Other than my oven) I’ve made almond butter with it (talk about having patience!), and now I love making homemade pesto sauce with it. I found this recipe online somewhere (sadly, I do not remember where), and it worked like a charm.


  • 1 cup walnuts
  • 2 cups chopped parsley
  • 1/2 cup shredded Parmesan cheese
  • 2-3 garlic cloves, chopped
  • 1/2 cup olive oil
  • 1/2 tsp. salt


Add all the ingredients except the olive oil into the food processor. Process them until they are mostly combined. Scrape down the sides and continue processing a bit more. Add the olive oil and process for 20-30 more seconds.
