“This is a super spread on hot toast, fresh bread or pasta. It's really worth it to make it when you can get fresh herbs -- it's really all about the herbs! Put in your processor, and whizz! Quantities can vary. I found it quite hard to measure because I simply use handfuls ... Prep time is a rough guess for preparing the herbs, assembling the ingredients, and processing.”
