Here is our simple recipe for basil pesto using Everland's basil leaves:
2 cups packed fresh Everland basil leaves
9 peeled almonds (you can soak them overnight to do this)
3 garlic cloves
2 tbsp lemon juice
3 tbsp nutritional yeast
1/2 tsp salt
3 tbsp extra-virgin olive oil
3 tbsp water (plus more if you want it thinner, but add at the end)
- Chop almonds and roast on medium/low heat until golden.
- In a food processor or blender, add the basil, garlic, lemon juice, nutritional yeast, and salt, and mix on medium until a loose paste forms (hold off on the almonds).
- Add olive oil a little at a time, then add 1 tbsp water at a time until the desired consistency is reached - a thick but pourable sauce.
- Add chopped up almonds and mix on low (you want to keep a little crunch).
- Taste and adjust flavor as needed, based on how you will be using it. Enjoy!
