(Makes 2 cups)


  • 1 cup walnut halves
  • 4–6 cloves garlic, peeled
  • 2 handfuls curly parsley
  • 2 tbsp olive oil
  • salt and freshly ground pepper


Place walnuts, garlic and parsley into the bowl of a food processor and blend until combined but still coarse.

With the motor running, pour in olive oil. Add just enough oil to combine – the mixture should be dry and not overly oily. Season to taste.

Store in an airtight container in the refrigerator for up to 1 week.

From Nine To Noon
