Green Basil Pesto recipe
I absolutely love basil, it’s my favorite herb! I google searched “health benefits of basil” a while back and read that basil is anticancer, antibacterial, anti inflammatory and is full of many nutrients, minerals and vitamins that are essential for good health!
I have about 8 basil plants so I make a lot of pesto dips! I hope you enjoy!
Add all ingredients below, in this order, in a food processor.
- 2 cups Macadamia Nuts
- 1/2 cup Raw Pumpkin Seeds
- bunch of Basil
- Few cloves of Garlic
- Dash of Sea Salt (to taste)
- Dash of Pepper
- Chili flakes (if you like a dash of spice)
- 1/2 to 1 cup of olive oil
With the basil pesto dip I like to eat it with crackers and veggie sticks. I like to put it wraps, also in seaweed wraps with veggies and so forth! Get creative with it and make some healthy yummy food for a healthier happier you!
