Herb, Almond and Pumpkin Seed Pesto

Pesto is a sauce that originates from Italy, and comes in lots of variations, depending on the region. It usually consists of basil, garlic, pine nuts, and parmesan, all blended with olive oil. Our version is slightly different, because we’ve used lots of herbs, and replaced the pine nuts with almond flakes, and pumpkin seeds. The result is delicious, full of flavor, and we think it’s definitely a keeper!

Ingredients

4 rosemary sprigs
0.5 ounce chives
1 ounce basil
4 thyme sprigs
1 ounce lemon balm
4 garlic cloves
½ cup almond flakes
3 ounces of pumpkin seeds
1 teaspoon salt
½ cup olive oil
½ cup parmesan, shredded

Steps

  1. Grab your blender and first add the rosemary, chives, basil, thyme, and lemon balm.
  2. Add garlic, almond flakes, and pumpkin seeds. Season with salt and pour the olive oil.
  3. Shred the parmesan and add it to the mixture.
  4. Blend all of the ingredients until smooth.
  5. Add the pesto sauce in a jar and secure it.
  6. You can store it in the refrigerator for the next week.
