Pesto

Dairy-Free-Pesto.jpg

Basil is known as "the king of herbs" due to it's anti-inflammatory properties.  It can be helpful to those with arthritis, crohn's and other inflammatory diseases. Pesto is a great way to sneak in extra greens and herbs and add a unique flavour to some of your favourite meals. Use it as a sauce for spiralled zucchini noodles, dip in your favorite raw veggies, use it as the sauce for pizza, or as a salad dressing. This recipe is my favourite as it's very adaptable; you can add more or less garlic, basil, or even throw in some kale.  I like to use up what I have in the fridge so my recipe varies slightly each time. 

I use my food processor to mix this recipe however, any high powered blender would work. I generally blend mine fine yet, you can also leave a few chunks if you prefer a chunky texture.
