Dairy Free Pesto

In keeping with my Whole30 I wanted to make some pesto without cheese. It’s not that this recipe is all that innovative or creative, but just a reminder that in this case it’s easy to remove the dairy and still have an amazing meal.

Dairy Free Pesto

Large handful of basil
Small handful of walnuts
extra virgin olive oil
small splash of lemon juice (to keep the basil from browning)
salt and pepper to taste

I’m not doing measurements here- there’s really no way to screw it up. Just work to desire texture and taste. Put everything in a blender (I used my magic bullet) and give it a good whirl. Delicious and I didn’t miss the parmesan at all!


Lemony Hummus

I love this hummus recipe because I don’t have to worry about whether or not I have tahini on hand (note: not usually!) and it’s just the right amount garlicky. The extra lemon juice brightens it up and makes you want to eat it with a spoon!

Lemony Hummus

1 can garbanzo beans, drained and rinsed
1 tsp minced garlic
3 Tbl olive oil
3 Tbl lemon juice
1/4 tsp cumin

Puree all ingredients in a food processor, blender, magic bullet, or pulverizing mechanism of your choice.
