This seed-free pesto is perfect for those with allergies; this sauce is great on pasta, chicken, fish and a whole range of your favourite dishes.

Remove the thick stems from the basil and pop into the small bowl of a food processor with the garlic, parmesan and half the oil. Pulse for a few seconds, then add the remaining oil and whizz until a rough pesto consistency is achieved. Season to taste with the lemon juice and some salt.
