Add it to pasta, spread it on toast with avo, add to roast veggies. The options are endless.

Ingredients

1 cup macadamia nuts or cashews or almonds 

2-3 cups fresh basil, stems removed ( you really can use any herb) 

1 garlic cloves

1/2 to 1 lemon zest and juice

Half an avocado 

2 tbsp of nutritional yeast or parmesan 

1/8 cup of good quality olive oil 

1 tsp salt (celtic or pink salt) 

Freshly ground pepper to taste

2 tbsp of coconut cream 

Method: 

Blend all ingredients in the food processor. Blend until desired consistency (add water or coconut cream if you would like it smoother). 

If you would like really smooth pesto:

  1. Soak the cashews for 2-4 hours

  2. Drain and wash cashews, add everything to the blender
