Date-Almond Pesto: The Best Thing Ever


large handful or two of fresh Italian parsley
small handful of dates
small handful of almonds
1 small garlic clove
1 star anise
about 1 tsp of fennel seed
olive oil
splash of rice vinegar for acid

…but, the popular method for pesto is 2 cups of herb to 1/2-2/3c of olive oil, 1/4c of nuts and 1/2c grated cheese plus seasonings.

Linguine with date-almond pesto and fried bread crumbs is the best thing.
