Pesto is seriously TOO easy to make. It is super delicious and really simple -- a great go-to to switch up tomato sauce or to add to a chicken breast. I always keep a fresh stock of it in the fridge for a quick throw-together dinner!
5-minute Homemade Pesto
2 cups fresh basil leaves (packed)
1/4 cup pine nuts
2 cloves garlic
2/3 cup extra-virgin olive oil
1/2 cup freshly grated Parmesan cheese
Himalayan pink salt and freshly ground pepper, to taste
Seriously. It's that easy. Tastes super delicious on: zucchini noodles, chicken breast, whole wheat or brown rice pasta, toast, mixed veggies, crackers, and pretty much anything.
This recipe is also super easy to switch up. Sometimes I'll do half basil and half kale, or maybe no garlic, or maybe red pepper flakes for an extra kick! Make it your own! :)
