Ingredients
 

  • 50 g pinenuts
  • 80 ml sunflower oil
  • 2 small shallots, finely chopped
  • 1 clove garlic finely chopped
  • pinch ground black pepper
  • 70 g fresh watercress
  • 30 g rocket
  • 30-50 g grated parmesan cheese
  • 1 tsp Dijon mustard
  • pinch red chilli flakes
  • pinch salt

Instructions
 

  • Preheat the oven to 200°C/ Gas 6.
  • Place the pinenuts on a tray and bake until lightly browned but not burnt, and leave to cool.
  • This will increase the flavour of the pinenuts.
  • Place the shallots, garlic, pepper, watercress, cheese, chilli and salt into a food processor.
  • Add half the oil and blitz until fairly smooth.
  • Gradually add the oil until you have a thickish sauce. Then, carefully add more oil until you get the right consistency.
  • Spoon into a bowl, taste and adjust with salt and pepper. A squeeze or two of lemon brings out the flavour and helps keep the colour.
