Pesto Sauce

Raw Pesto Sauce

I was at the market the other day and there was an abundance of Basil and fresh Garlic – perfect for making pesto.

2 bunches basil leaves (no stems)

2 – 3 garlic cloves

squeeze of 1/2 lemon

3/4 cup cold pressed olive oil

nuts are optional, I usually use them, but you don’t have to. Traditional pesto called for pine nuts, but you can also mix them up. I have used pumpkin seeds, macadamia nuts and walnuts, you don’t have to soak them, it is up to you, I usually don’t.

Put all ingredients into a food processor and blend up until mixed well.  You can make it very smooth or a little more course.  You can add more olive oil for less concentrate.  I usually make it somewhat concentrate then depending on the dish I can add more oil if need be.

This is great for pastas, (regular and raw), crackers, dressing etc

Enjoy!!
