Oil and nut free pesto.

So we all love pesto right? But so many of them are heavy with processed oils and sit in your stomach repeating on you…mine is light fresh packed with protein and goes with everything!

I have used hemp seeds as I love there earthy taste and health benefits but you could use sunflower seeds or pumpkin seeds too…work with what you have in your panty already.

What you will need:

  • 2 cups kale leaves
  • 3 cups basil
  • 1 cup hemp seeds
  • 1 juice of a lemon and zest
  • 1 clove garlic
  • season if required
  • 1/4 cup filtered water if needed for consistency

How to make this:

  1. add all the ingredients in tot blender or nutribullet and blend till smooth, adding a dash of water or more lemon juice to get to your desired consistency and taste.
  2. scrap it in to jar and store in the fridge for up to 1 week….if it last that long.

This can be used a spread on seed crackers, as a salad dressing, through vegetables, through zoodles or on top of a burger or in a taco! so many uses for this quick and easy pantry staple, my kitchen is never without it…
