PESTO

PESTO (OIL AND DAIRY FREE)

Who can resist the flavor of basil? It enhances so many things, from vegetable soup to spaghetti, to sandwiches – anything savory that wants a little extra kick. This pesto is easy to put together and can be frozen for a few weeks.

INGREDIENTS

  • 2 cups of basil leaves packed down
  • 2 cups of spinach leaves packed down
  • ½ cup shelled walnuts, preferably toasted
  • 2 cloves of garlic
  • ¼ to ½ cup of vegetable broth or white wine
  • Salt and pepper to taste

METHOD

Put all of the ingredients in a food processor and process until the sauce is fairly smooth. Add more broth or wine to get the consistency you want.

This makes about one cup.
