Here is another quick and easy recipe perfect for summer nights when you don’t want to spend a ton of time in the kitchen. Everything just goes in the blender and the outcome is a delicious, fresh, healthy pesto without any cheese.
1 lb brown rice pasta
4 cups loosely packed fresh basil leaves (I don’t worry too much about exact measurements here. It’s always good!)
1 bunch of cilantro
2/3 cup almonds
2 tsp minced garlic
1/4 cup lemon juice (I use the stuff in a bottle)
1/2 cup olive oil
1/4-1/2 cup water
1 tsp salt
Cook the pasta according to the directions on the package.
Place all the ingredients for the pesto in a blender or food processor. Blend! If it’s too thick to blend add a little more water.
Look at all those veggies!
Transformed into deliciousness!
