Creamy pistachio pesto

Creamy pistachio pesto

This is a springy pairing for our new, grassy Greek EVOO. 

We've already made a post on all things pesto. But having discovered this pistachio pesto recipe, we decided it needs a dedicated blog post of its very own.

It's creamy, versatile & ridiculously tasty. You may find yourself slathering it on everything—pastas, sandwiches, salad…even toast. 

    Here's the method:

    Makes one cup

    • To a blender add basil, 2 spring garlics (normal garlic always works) and 200ml of EVOO. Blitz it up until smooth. 
    • Then, pop in all the shelled pistachios, pine nuts, parmesan and nutritional yeast— with a generous pinch of salt.
    • Add a squirt of lemon and blend until ‘almost’ smooth. 
    • Et voilà! It's *that* easy.
    • Store in a container for up to 1 week or freeze!

Sicily and the southern part of Italy has the bulk of the Italy's olive cultivars, and the diversity of flavours across the island is striking. You also have the iconic Nocellara olives—those big, buttery olives give off real "cool natural wine bar" vibes. But even in one of the biggest olive oil regions in the world, finding ...

      This is Sparta: Introducing our EVOO from Greece

      It’s a whole new place, but still in one of our favourite regions. The Peloponnese is a magical peninsula, encapsulating both ancient Greece and the modern era—which feels fitting for this oil. Old traditions and family legacies have mixed with high-tech precision to deliver thoughtful quality, all centred around a community making its comeback.  I lost a lot of sleep about the state of Greek oil this year.
