Sauce #1: The Perfect Raw Pesto
Author: 
 
Ingredients
  • 2 ounces of fresh basil (sort of hard to measure in cups, probably 4 cups)
  • 1 cup raw organic walnuts (you could also toast the walnuts, but do not if making raw)
  • 3 to 4 tablespoons fresh lemon (to taste)
  • ½ cup olive oil (or preferred oil)
  • ½ teaspoon garlic granules (or one clove of fresh garlic – or to taste)
  • ½ teaspoon salt
  • 1 large ripe avocado
Instructions
  1. Place toasted walnuts in food processor and pulse a few times.
  2. Add basil, garlic granules, salt and pulse.
  3. Add the avocado and pulse until incorporated.
  4. Test for seasoning.
Notes
This sauce also works great with cooked gluten-free pasta (this is how I tested it originally)
Pesto is best served at room temperature (in my opinion)
