Pesto Sauce

Don't you think a dollop of Pesto sauce adds style annd pizzazz to any dish?

And besides that it is so delicious and is rich with nutrients that have amazing health benefits too.

I made this wee sauce yesterday, and it was so quick and easy I wanted to share the recipe with you so that you can start adding it to your cooking repertoire!

Here is the recipe so that you can make it at home...

Ingredients

1 bunch of fresh basil
1/2 lime (squeeze in the juice)
5 almonds
1 clove garlic
sea salt to taste
Olive oil (1/4 - 1/2 cup)

Instructions

Blend all together in a blender for 1-2 minutes ...Voila!

Preparation time

10 minutes.

Important Chef Notes

Basil - choose the freshest basil you can, and wash well. As you wash your basil be gentle and conscious and wash the basil with love Be generous!

Lime - I like to quarter my limes and then you can squeeze all the juice out using your hands. Every time you use your hands with your food you are exchanging energy and adding love into your food.

Almonds - If you have time, soak any nuts you eat. Today I didn't have any soaked nuts on hand so I didn't. If you don't have almonds you can use other nuts; walnuts, pumpkin seeds, sunflower seeds, pine nuts brazil nuts, cashew nuts... the list and choices are endless...

Garlic - optional - if you don't like garlic cut it out... try to use the freshest garlic you can. Always chop your garlic clove into 2 or 3 to release allicin. Allicin is the chemical produced when garlic is chopped, chewed, or bruised. Allicin is quite powerful as an antibiotic and a potent agent that helps the body to inhibit the ability of germs to grow and reproduce. In fact, it's said that 1 milligram of allicin has a potency of 15 standard units of penicillin.

Sea salt - No measurement required. Just to taste. I always like to use pink or grey himalayan sea salt, or flaky Maldon sea salt from England. Add a good pinch (and yes, it's okay to lick your fingers!) :)

Olive oil - Is said to offer many health benefits when used in its 'raw' and unadulterated state (not heated), including heart and cancer protection, lubrication for joint mobility and essential fatty acids. Olive oil is a natural juice which preserves the taste, aroma, vitamins and all the healing properties of the olive fruit. Depending on what nuts you use, and how much basil you use, will directly affect how much olive oil you will need. Be generous with your oil with this recipe.
