The BEST Homemade Pesto Recipe

The BEST Homemade Pesto Recipe

If you know me, you know my love for pesto runs veryyyy deep. Here is the best pesto recipe I’ve been making for 6+ years and it never gets old💚 it’s good to meal prep for the week, to enjoy of course with pasta- but also any dish like chicken, rice bowl, salads. The only other ingredient I sometimes add is avocado for healthy fats and to make it super creamy! You gotta try it!!

2.5 packed cups of fresh basil

1 cup arugula

1/2 tablespoon lemon juice

1/4 cup pine nuts

1/2 cup grated parmesan

1/4 cup olive oil

1/4 cup parsley

1 clove garlic

1/3 cup water

Dash of salt

The recipe:

De-stem and wash fresh basil.

Place all your ingredients in a food processor or blender and blend till smooth (or desired texture).

Store in an airtight jar to have for any meal or snack for the rest of the week! xx
