TRUFFLE PESTO TOAST

TRUFFLE PESTO TOAST


 

Adding Truffle Pesto to your toast will give it another layer of deliciousness! I am big fan of olive oil toast, but sometimes a girl needs to switch it up. I had made Truffle Pesto for a pasta dish and had a bunch left over and I wasn't in the mood to freeze it so I lathered lots of slices of bread with pesto and I had many mouth orgasms.

So make and enjoy!

 

ingredients

2 GARLIC CLOVES
1/2 CUP RAW ALMONDS
4 CUPS BASIL
2 tablespoon lemon juice
1/2 CUP OLIVE OIL, and more for drizzling
1/4 cup white truffle oil (can find this at any speciality grocery store)
1/4 CUP FINELY GRATED PARMESAN
SALT
FRESHly GROUnd PEPPER
bread

preparation

Preheat oven to 350 degrees

Place the garlic and almonds into the bowl of a food processor and pulse several times. Add the basil, parmesan, and lemon juice and pulse.

While the food processor is running, slowly add the olive oil and truffle oil in a steady small stream. 

Stir in some salt and freshly ground black pepper to taste.

Drizzle olive oil over bread and spread pesto on bread, place on a baking pan or directly on the rack for about 10 minutes, flipping it halfway through. Cook until the bread is golden brown and pesto is dark green.
