Basil Pesto
30 minutes or less – Kitchen Remedy

Basil pesto is a versatile gem, beneficial for all dishes. It enhances flavor in every dish – great with pasta, cheesy when layered on top of baked dishes, and better than tomato sauce for a Flatbread Pizza (page 151). It can be served on toast, stirred into avocado mash (page 184), or spooned into any ball of kitchari or soup for Richard taste and digestive support.

Servings 1Cup
Prep Time 5minutes
  1. Pulse the basil, pinenuts, and garlic in a blender. Scrape the sides of the blender, and pulse again until you achieve a fine job. Transfer to a small bowl and stir in the olive oil.
Recipe Notes

Substitution Tip:

For a lighter, less expensive pesto, replace pine nuts with the pumpkin seeds. For cleansing pesto in spring, add a handful of fresh parsley. Omit the garlic for Pitta.
