EAT BEAUTIFUL- vegan homemade Basil Pesto

My version of Pesto will provide a concentrated dosage of green leaves, rich in antioxidants, minerals, vitamins and a good source of healthy fatty acids from the olive oil & walnuts.

Basil is my favourite herb in the kitchen.

I often use it fresh in salads, Pasta, toast, and Pesto (:

Key ingredients:

Basil

Fragrant Basil is a delicious source of anti-ageing antioxidants, rich in vitamins A, K, C  and manganese. (1)

Pesto

Parsley

A rich source of vitamins K, A, C, Folate and the Minerals Iron, Calcium, Magnesium and Potassium. (2)

Pesto

When you make homemade Pesto you get the best health benefits from the fresh ingredients, this is one of the ways to make sure you get the best from your diet!

This is not the traditional Pesto, with pine nuts, parmesan cheese, garlic and basil.

 This is my adjustment to delicious and healthier Pesto.

Good quality ingredients are the basis for a healthy diet I changed the recipe a bit to maximize the health benefits.
