Pistachio and mint pesto

  1. 1

    Put the green peppercorns, garlic and salt into a mortar and pound into a paste. Add the mint and continue pounding into a purée. Add the pistachios and continue until a pesto consistency forms. With the pestle, slowly incorporate the argan oil and the lime juice.

  2. 2

    This pesto can be kept for up to two days in the refrigerator but is at its best when freshly made.

An ancient ingredient, pomegranate molasses is made by boiling down fresh pomegranate juice until it is thick enough to keep without preservatives. This fruity, sweet and sour syrup is used in salad dressings, marinades, sauces, or simply as a finishing touch. We like to call it the Middle East’s balsamic vinegar. The best brands contain no sugar or other added ingredients, only pomegranate.
