I HEART PESTO <3
Pesto on pizza, pesto on sandwiches, pesto on eggs, pesto on everythinggggg!
So I saw this nut free/vegan version using avocado - genius! So I decided to add a few of my own twists adding spinach & walnut oil, nutritimentation style.
Full of healthy fats and greens, this pesto is a skin-glowing, brain boosting concoction.
Avocado Basil Spinach Pesto
1 ripe avocado
basil leaves (I used the leaves from about 1/2 package)
big handful of spinach (about 1/2 cup)
1 Tbsp of freshly squeezed lemon juice
1/4 cup of walnut oil
1/4 tsp of Himalayan salt (or kosher/sea salt)
Combine all ingredients in a food processor (or blender) & blend until smooth.
Try a 'caprese' style omelet stacking fresh tomato with the pesto with a spinach omelet topped with more pesto & hemp seeds.
