Basil, fresh

10 g, small handful

Lemon Juice, Fresh

15 ml

Olive Oil

Instructions

  1. To make the pesto, blend the pine nuts and garlic in a food processor. Add the basil leaves, lemon juice and oil and blitz until you have a paste, then mix in the Parmesan cheese. Season the pesto to taste and set aside.
  2. Mist a frying pan with the cooking spray and fry the steak for 2 minutes on each side, or until browned and cooked to your liking.
  3. Meanwhile, toast the pitta and split it open. Spread the inside of the pitta with half the pesto, covering both sides.
  4. Fill the pitta with the tomato, rocket and steak. Top with the remaining pesto and eat while still warm.
