Provencal Mint Pesto

Provencal Mint Pesto

Pistou is originally a recipe from Nice in Provence.
It is traditionally a sauce made from nuts and herbs, and modified with garlic and oil. 

This recipe is a pesto usually served with lamb. A much more subtle flavour than the mint jelly, or mint and vinegar sauces we often use on lamb.

3 cloves of crushed garlic
1 tsp fresh thyme leaves
1 tblsp parsley  
Zest of 2 lemons
Juice of 1 lemon
