'All good plant-pushers need a pesto recipe up their sleeve, and this is my hot take: zinging with citrus, plus a little heat from chilli and heroing seasonal purple sprouting broccoli', says Derek Sarno, Tesco's director of plant-based innovation. See method
of the reference intake
Cook the peas and broccoli in a large pan of boiling water for 4-5 mins until the broccoli stems are tender. Drain, run under cold water and drain again.
Meanwhile, toast the pine nuts in a dry frying pan for 3-4 mins until golden. Tip into a food processor with the garlic, basil, mint, lemon zest and juice, and the crushed chillies. Blitz to combine, then add the peas and broccoli.
Blitz, slowly adding the olive oil and 4 tbsp water while the motor is running, to make a thick, slightly chunky pesto. Season well and add more crushed chillies to taste, if you like. Will keep in an airtight container in the fridge for up to 2 days.
