Perfect Pesto: Home Made Deliciousness

I got all inspired with a week at home writing to make my own pesto, and a whole bunch of other condiments and treats I will be sharing on this blog.

The resources for amazing healthy whole food and clean eating recipes are endless.

Today I wanted to share one that I use from the WHOLEPANTRY APP  Belle has done a great job at keeping this wonderful app inspiring, simple and easy to use.  I recommend this app as fun way to get some goodness back into your kitchen without the fuss; and at no time do you see the word “dieting”…

Making your own pesto: why bother? WELL, let me give you 5 reasons it’s worth it

  1. No preservatives
  2. Quality natural ingredients you have control over (i.e all organic)
  3. No fillers – just the basics
  4. An essential oils and nutritional version that smacks with taste too
  5. It’s fun & fast!  (In fact it was quicker for me to make this than go down to Coles and buy some)

So here you go!

Pre time: 5 minutes

Allergy info: Gluten Free/Dairy Free/Vegan

What you need ( I didn’t measure just added bunches of this and that – but have included the exact details below)

  • Broccoli (1/2 head)
  • Kale leaves (8)
  • 3 coves of garlic
  • 40 grams parsley
  • 200 grams  walnuts
  • 80ml macadamia oil (or olive oil)  – I used Brookfarm Macadamia oil. If you hop online you can get 10% off Brookfarm by putting the code LAGBF10
  • 2 lemons, juice
  • 1/2 teaspoon sea salt

What To Do

Chop the broccoli into pieces and throw all the ingredients into a food processor or blender  (except the walnuts for now).

Blend for 2-3 minutes and then add the walnuts and blend for about 30seconds or until you have a pesto like texture. I like to keep mine a little bit rustic so did not over blend.

Scoop it out (tasting as you go is allowed – you’re the chef …)  and place into a covered jar in the fridge. It lasts up to 10 days refrigerated. I have also frozen some to see how that goes to use with dishes etc when it’s busy.

Belle at the WholePantry always puts thoughtful notes in: such as leaving out the walnuts and replacing these with sunflower seeds for a nut free recipe.

Hope you like this easy, no fail and delicious addition to your weekly nourishment.

PS: I have used Belle’s photos as my concoction tasted great but was a little messier looking and didn’t do her recipe justice in the photo department.

Health & Happiness and have fun!

PS: For those of you doing my FREE 4 week program at the moment – this is what I recommend you bring into week 3 as a nice way to add some healthy tasty options to your kitchen
