Pesto Magic

Updated: Aug 8, 2020

I'm totally addicted to pesto and I whiz them up all summer long. Made in seconds, they add a fabulous colour explosion and zingy freshness to your plate. I drizzle it over salads or baked vegetables, dollop it into soups, use it as a spread or combine it with courgetti or soba-noodles.

Absolutely delicious, pesto is also a fantastic way to get extra greens into your daily diet – fresh and raw they add a big nutritional punch. So forget those sad, shop bought alternatives, laden with additives and preservatives.

You don't really need to follow a recipe, just throw in any combination, that takes your fancy, of: Herbs/Greens; Nuts/Seeds; Olive Oil; Lime/Lemon juice; Spices; Avocado; etc.

But to get you started, try this combination:

Add all the ingredients to a food processor.

1 Avocado

1 large handful of Basil

1 large handful of Rocket

1/3 cup of Almonds

juice of 1 Lime

pinch or Pink Himalayan Salt

1 garlic clove

1/4 tsp Turmeric

Cold-pressed Virgin Olive Oil: As you start to whiz, slowly drizzle until the desired consistency is reached.

Eat with everything and enjoy!
