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!


Mint and Parsley Pesto

I have been love, love, loving my herb garden! I use so many fresh herbs lately. I have been especially trying to find good uses for my fresh mint (other than mojitos!) This pesto is wonderful! I used it as a dressing over a large salad with romaine and chicken.

Mint and Parsley Pesto

1 cup fresh mint
1/2 cup fresh parsley
1 clove garlic
2 Tbsp walnuts, toasted
2 Tbsp grated romano cheese
3 Tbsp extra virgin olive oil (or enough for desired consistency)
Kosher salt and pepper, to taste

Put everything except the oil in the food processor and run until chopped. Then drizzle in the oil while the processor is running to achieve desired consistency.
