My favorite Pesto!
This may look a bit chunky but that is the way I enjoy it.
I often make it smooth as well, it just needs extra processing and it becomes awesomely smooth!
- 2 cups packed, fresh basil
- 1/3 cup pine nuts
- 1/3 cup cashews
- 1/3 cup almonds
- 1/3 cup extra virgin olive oil
- 1/2 lemon, juiced (use juice, about 1 tbsp)
- 2-4 cloves of garlic (depending on how strong you want it)
- 1/2 tsp sea salt
- 1/4 tsp black pepper
Note: All ingredients are raw.
Put all ingredients in food processor, process until desired consistency, scraping sides as needed.
The blend of all the different nuts are wonderful! This is by far, the best pesto I have come across, the taste is wonderful.
It's quite addicting with spelt bunny pretzels...
Just dip these pretzels in the pesto, and you will surely be in heaven!
