Thai Basil Pesto

Dreaming of Thailand so I’ve conjured a smell and taste of Thai last night at home.  Thai cuisine really got me and I was so happy for this really spicy, heady and strong burst of flavors from a concoction of herbs and spices as follows:

The Ingredients:

2 cups Thai Basil
1/2 cup mix nuts
4 cloves garlic
1 tsp ginger
2 tsp chili flakes
1 tbsp wild honey
1 tbsp white vinegar
3-4 tbsp olive oil
1 tbsp fish sauce
1 tbsp lime juice

Here’s How:

Grind all ingredients in a food processor.  Use only 5 tbsp of the pesto sauce in 1/4 kilo pasta or as your senses prefer.

WARNING!

This pesto sauce recipe is not for the faint-hearted.  But if you love Thai and Indian food, you will definitely want more of this!  I will also try the rest of the sauce with fried tofu and roasted veggies later and tomorrow.  The sauce can last up to 2 weeks in the fridge.  Click links below for other Thai dish recipes!  #tosomeats
