How to Make Super Easy Macadamia Nut Pesto Sauce

by Joe Lauer

Fortunately, I live in Honolulu, Hawaii so I made pesto sauce and instead of using pine nuts I used macadamia nuts!


  • Basil Leaves
  • Parmesan Cheese
  • Olive Oil
  • Macadamia Nuts
  • Garlic
  • Salt and Pepper (optional)
  • Sun-Dried Tomato (optional/for fun)
  • Instructions

    Step 1

    First, add your basil, garlic, cheese, tomato, and macadamia nuts into the food processor (or blender) then pulse it a bit to get things mixed up nicely!

    Step 2

    It should look like this after your first pulse and before you add the olive oil.

    Step 3

    Next, add the olive oil, and while you're adding the oil continually pulse the processor (or blender) until everything is mixed together.

    Step 4

    If things get stuck to the side just scoop all back together and pulse a little bit more with a bit more olive oil also.

    Step 5

    Now scoop it out, add a little salt and pepper if you want, and enjoy it with something like a bagel with cream cheese :D!
