KRISTINA'S TIPS

NZ Lifestyle Block - - Self-Sufficiency -

• If you are a pesto purist, you use a mor­tar and pes­tle. How­ever, it is much quicker and eas­ier to use a food pro­ces­sor. I usu­ally make a sur­plus to freeze, so the food pro­ces­sor wins for ef­fi­ciency. If you halve th­ese recipes, a stick mixer will do the job.

• Th­ese recipes are all dairy-free, but you can add Parme­san or feta cheese if you like.

• Any kind of nuts and seeds can be used, toasted or raw – I ex­per­i­mented with toasted co­conut and it turned out to be a de­li­cious part­ner with the spicy red co­ral mizuna.

• If you're on a bud­get, use rice bran or peanut oil; if not, a bou­tique olive oil is de­li­cious.
