    Whenever I look at a recipe I’ve preparted in the past I look for similarities. In the case of a basil pesto, I look for the nut ingredient to be sure they’re toasted before they are put in the blender because it gives the pesto a depth of flavor, so I’m happy to see you roasted the almonds beforehand.

      I agree. Nuts and whole spices are always recommended to be roasted before being blended.

    I really love that you added almonds to this! I bet it’s delicious. Homemade pesto is such a treat! I wonder if you tried making it with roasted garlic it would be better for your husband??

    Can never go wrong with pesto!! So glad the second time around the pesto worked out better! I can see why the Thai basil one didn’t go so well!
