This pesto spread whips up in less than five minutes, and will blow your mind. It’s so easy to make, and very versatile. Eat it by itself with some crackers or french bread. Or, better yet, I mixed it with some non-dairy cream cheese, and it was literally so good I ate myself into a food coma.
4 oz fresh basil
2 cups walnuts
5 medium cloves garlic
2 tablespoons olive oil
1-2 teaspoons salt
Optional: non-dairy cream cheese
Place all ingredients in a food processor and pulse for about 10 seconds. You want the pesto to be relatively coarse, like in the picture. Eat alone, or mix with cream cheese, either way, it’s fantastic. You may need to adjust the salt to taste, start out with 1 teaspoon, and add more as needed. I like 2 teaspoons, it’s a little bit salty, but it brings out the flavors.
