Do you love pesto? Do you have a basil plant? Thinking about getting one? Well, this recipe was found by my husband. Apparently this one, in particular, will give you 8 of the 12 foods that you want to eat daily…so, here goes it…
2 cups fresh basil leaves
1/4 cup freshly toasted walnuts
2 cloves fresh garlic
1/4 of a peeled lemon
1/4 teaspoon lemon zest
1/4 inch fresh turmeric root (or 1/4 tsp turmeric powder)
1/4 cup pinto beans
1/4 cup water o liquid from bean can
1 tablespoon white miso
pepper to taste
Combine everything in a food processor or use an immersion blender (my preferred choice) and blend until smooth. Scoop onto pasta.
And, that’s it, folks. Simple. Healthy. Delicious.
