SUPER GREEN BASIL PESTO GF/DF

Time to go green!

Benefit: the power of greens increases your alkalinity, your B vitamin status, parsley is a wonderful source of Calcium and coriander aids detoxification.  Raw nuts boost essential fats so great for mood and weight management.

Ingredients

  • 2 cups freshly washed basil leaves
  • 1 cup fresh coriander
  • 1 cup fresh parsley leaves
  • ½ cup almonds soaked for 4-6 hrs in water (may use cashews/pine nuts)
  • 1-2 cloves garlic
  • mineral salt to taste
  • ¼ – ½ cup cold pressed olive oil, option to use hemp/flax seed oil
  • 2 tsps of greens powder (I like quantum/health force nutritionals)

Method

Combine the basil, almonds and garlic and salt into a food processor until the mixture becomes a course meal.

Slowly add in the olive oil in a steady drizzle, pulsing the food processor on and off.  Add enough oil so that the mixture is moist.

Stir through the super greens powder, may add more or add spirulina/blue green algae.

Transfer to a glass bowl and pour a thin layer of olive oil over the top to keep the green colour.

Leave to chill for 1 hour.

Serve as a snack with crudités, over fish or chicken or stir through courgette noodles!

Enjoy!
