By Mark Sisson
0 Comments

Pesto is one of the most versatile sauces in terms of use—and preparation. An herb, a nut, some garlic and good quality oil are really all it takes to put together a tasty pesto sauce you can use on virtually any meat or veggie dish. (We love it as a topping or marinade for chicken!)

This easy, simple pesto recipe offers a perfect go-go recipe when you want that classic basil and pine nut pesto flavor. What will you use it for?

Easy Peasy Primal Pesto

Servings: 4

Time In the Kitchen: 5 minutes

Ingredients:

  • 2 cups fresh basil leaves
  • 2 cloves garlic
  • 1/3 cup pine nuts
  • 1/2 cup fresh Parmesan cheese
  • 1/4 teaspoon salt
  • 1/4 teaspoon black pepper
  • 1/2 cup Primal Kitchen® Extra Virgin Avocado Oil (or olive oil if preferred)

Instructions:

Put torn basil leaves, garlic cloves and pine nuts in a food processor or blender. Pulse for about 10 seconds or until garlic appears well chopped. Add cheese and salt and pepper. Run processor while you pour in oil and blend well into a spoonable sauce. (If you’ll be storing rather than using right away, add a squeeze of fresh lemon juice to maintain color.) Enjoy!
