Fresh Pesto is a really versatile sauce that goes well with any grilled meat, pasta, seafood, salad, or sandwiches. This recipe has a hint of spiciness from the green chilies. Love it!



2 Bags (About 210g) of Fresh Basil, rinsed and dry
2 Cloves Garlic, chopped
¼ Cup Toasted Pine Nuts
2 Serrano Chilies, seeded and chopped
Zest of 1 Lemon
¾ Cup Extra-Virgin Olive Oil
Juice of ½ a Lemon
Sea Salt
Freshly Ground Black Pepper
3 to 4 Tbsp Grated Parmesan


Combine basil, garlic, pine nuts, chili, and lemon zest in a food processor. Pulse and chop until all the ingredients are roughly blended. Slowly add in the olive oil and continue to pulse and chop. Transfer to a large bowl and add the lemon juice, stir, and add the Parmesan. Check for seasoning.

I'm actually laughing at myself! What have I got into? Trying to make dumplings?? Well, I have seen my late grandmother make them a long time ago. I can remember the ingredients but not the measurements! So, it took me about two hours to come up with the perfect recipes, and I'm glad I did! It was an instant hit! They were all gone, all gobbled up! Make the dough first, add about 480 to 500g of all-purpose flour with 300ml of water. Knead the dough and let it rest. You should be able to make 40 dumplings with the dough. Meanwhile, prepare the filling for the dumplings. Click here for the dumpling wrappers video.
