Celery Almond Pesto

celery pesto recipe
This is a milder and — I assume — more kid-friendly pesto. Just every bit as delicious as the classic basil-pine nut, though.

Use fresh herbs, fresh garlic, good quality raw nuts, the best olive oil you can afford (this is when it really counts), and excellent Parmigiano-Reggiano.

All you have to do is blend together in the food processor: 4 cups of fresh celery leaves (Chinese celery is more leafy, darker in color, and has more pronounced celery taste), 1/3 cup raw blanched almonds, 3/4 cup extra-virgin olive oil, 2 large garlic cloves (peeled), 1/3 cup grated Parmigiano-Reggiano, and 1 teaspoon salt.
