Bellini Intelli Kitchen Master

Intelli Kitchen MasterI've had my Intelli Kitchen Master on layby and it's now at home. I love the Thermomix but the price is very cost prohibitive mainly because there is only one distributor for all of Australia - I think that's called a monopoly.

So I've just made some fresh pesto and the machine is quite easy to use. I understand that a $400 machine is not going to do what a $2000 machine does - I'm just hoping it performs well and I'm able to use it frequently.

I'll keep you updated on our progress.

3 cups fresh basil leaves
4 cloves garlic
1/2 - 3/4 cup Parmesan cheese (grated)
1/2 cup olive oil
1/4 cup pine nuts or walnuts or pecans
1/3 cup fresh parsley or kale (optional)
sea salt
juice of 1 lemon

Combine all ingredients in processor and blend to a smooth paste. Add more oil if necessary. Load into jars. Pesto can be frozen to have on hand
