Supergreen! Paleo Pesto.

Pesto. That’s one thing you wouldn’t want to miss out because of a (healthy) diet. And luckily, you don’t have to! Just omit the pasta.


[Nigella would be poetic in her words about this gleaming green pesto.]

Paleo Pesto

  • a bunch of fresh basilicum (may as well use the thai version, hint of aniseed in the taste)
  • (at least) 3 Tbsps pine nuts
  • 1 clove of garlic
  • 1 Tbsp of nutritional yeast (for the cheesy taste!)
  • loads of good quality organic extra virgin olive oil
  • salt

Rip off the leaves from the poor basilicum like a decent gatherer and stuff them into blender. Add pine nuts, garlic, salt and olive oil. Let blend and add olive oil until the consistency is creamy and soluble enough. You may also want to add some pine nuts, trust your taste. Nutritional yeast isn’t gonna ruin your batch by it’s absence, but I sincerely recommend it: the nutty, cheesy, salty taste really makes up for parmiggiano in other foods as well.

Mix pesto with veggies, meat or just eat it with a spoon! Goes with nearly everything and suits the non-paleo friends as well.
