Hey, to each their own right?
Anyway, I do LOVE pesto. And making pesto dairy free is actually very easy! And pretty dang healthy from my perspective.
This recipe was adapted from Gluten Free Goddess.
1 cup fresh spinach
1 cup fresh herbs, stems removed (I used mint, parsley, basil & cilantro)
2 cloves of garlic
1/2 cup pecans (hazelnuts and pine nuts can work as well)
1/4 cup extra virgin olive oil
In a food processor or small Ninja, blend up the spinach and herbs really well. Add in the garlic and pecans and blend until a paste begins to form.
Add in half of the oil, blend some more and then add in the rest of the oil. Blend and pulse and viola ;)
Absolutely delicious and so very fresh. Love it. I highly recommend this if you are missing toppings for your burgers, chicken, eggs etc.
