Walnut Basil Pesto

 

INGREDIENTS:

 

  • 1 Giant Handful Fresh Organic Basil

  • 1 Cup Raw Walnuts

  • 1/4 Cup Cold Pressed Virgin Olive Oil

  • 1/4 tsp Pink Sea Salt

  • 1/2 Squeeze Lemon Juice + 1 tsp Lemon Zest

 

You can also add about 5 drops of drops of lemon essential

oil in replacement of lemon juice! 

 

 

 

DIRECTIONS:

 

Place all of your ingredients in a food processor and blend until creamy smooth! 

 

Perfect as a dip, spread, or topping for salads + veggie bowls! 

 

I created this simple recipe because, 1.....I LOVE PESTO!! And 2, because most store bought pestos contain garlic and cheese. For those with sensitive tummies or on a Low FODMAP diet, this is the perfect little boost to enhance the flavor of any breakfast lunch or dinner! 

 

What are FODMAP's and should you stay away from them? Check out this article that explains a little more about how a lot of healthy foods contain some potentially problematic fermentable sugars for some people.
