my stick blender and food processor need too much oil/solids to blend smallish quantities of herbs (hand full/half a bunch).
can't be arsed with pestle/mortar...

I have a thing that attaches to my Kenwood which is perfect for this:

I got it reduced by 1/3 with a discount code for an extra chunk off: obviously it only works with a Kenwood but you might be able to get something similar?

The key thing I think is that it has two blades very low and close to the base of the chopper and then two bigger flatter ones which help chop the big stuff up originally.

I have the same attachment as @Gladioli23
Works brilliantly for curry pastes and salsas too.

My magimix has a mini bowl and blade you can sit inside the bigger one.

Another shout for the Kenwood mini chopper it’s brilliant at pesto and other dips

I bought a spice & nut grinder specifically to make pesto. I have the cuisinart, does a fantastic job.

I had a separate spice grinder but it was no good for pesto.

I have found an attachment for my machine, similar to the one linked above.

thanks a lot again. you ladies are awsome Flowers
