Super Food Pesto!


This pesto recipe was so good and made from healthy ingredients that it is forcing me out of my blog retirement. I usually get so much basil from my weekly farm share I don’t know what to do with it. The recipe was so easy! We had it for dinner one night over pasta and veggies and then ate it as a dip with baby carrots.

We all had it different ways…I had the pesto with some pasta and lots of veggies, Ant had pesto on just veggies with a side of beets, the kids had pesto pasta with some veggies. Yum!

1 cup fresh basil leaves

2/3 cup fresh parsley or cilantro leaves

Grind almonds and pine nuts finely. Pack basil and parsley tightly into measuring cup. Place in a blender or food processor with the remaining ingredients. Blend well & combine with nut mixture.
