I have a beautiful and super simple pesto for you. I made this pesto with the ingredients I had on hand: whole almonds, lots of basil, garlic, lemons, salt and olive oil.
I consider pesto a fridge staple, I make it so often because it is the perfect summer lunch or supper. We all love it with raw chopped vegetables or my raw crackers….so yummy and seriously healthy!
Note: I must say I do find it difficult to write the exact ingredients because much of my raw cooking is to taste. So I urge you to taste as you make. Don’t be scared to add more lemon or almond butter, use your own judgement.
1 garlic clove chopped
1/2 tsp. pink Himalayan salt
3 cups of fresh basil (leaves only)
3/4 cup of olive oil
1 tbsp. lemon juice
1/2 cup of almond butter (see foot note to make your own almond butter)
