To prepare the pine nut sauce, add all the ingredients into a Vitamix and blend until smooth. To prepare the chimichurri, add all the ingredients except for the red onion into the Vitamix and blend until smooth.Then chop the red onion and add it into the mix. Toast the hazelnuts in the oven at 200ºC (180ºC for fan assisted ovens) for 8-10 minutes.
