The local basil is gorgeous right now, and making pesto with it is like sunshine in a jar! I put it on everything….meat, veggies, paleo crackers. If you are eating Low FodMap, you can make amazing pesto with garlic infused olive oil. Basil has antibacterial properties, flavonoids, is high in Vitamin K and Magnesium.
Here’s how you do it:
1 Cup Fresh Basil, packed tight to measure
2 Tablespoons Raw Walnuts
2 Tablespoons Pine Nuts
6 Tablespoons Garlic Infused Olive Oil
1/2 Teaspoon Himalayan Pink Salt
1/2 Teaspoon Black Pepper
1 Teaspoon Fresh Squeezed Lemon Juice
1 Tablespoon Fresh Oregano (optional)
Place all the ingredients into a high speed blender and blend until desired consistency. Spoon liberally onto everything! It is amazing, savory, deliciousness and so good for you!
