Amazing Pesto

This is a great recipe that I modified from the Manitoba Harvest website. I have substituted hemp protein for the hemp hearts, adding more protein to the pesto, giving you more bang for your buck.

Ingredients

  • 6 Brazil nuts
  • 4 tbsp Hemp Pro 70
  • 2 1/2 cups of Fresh basil
  • 1/4 cup Hemp oil
  • Juice from half a lemon
  • 1 clove garlic
  • Salt and Pepper to taste

Mix ingredients well. Keeps in fridge for 5 days. Serve with whole grain or rice crackers/pita chips,  for a delicious and healthy appetizer option. You can also use this to mix through some pasta as a quick side dish or as a spread for a sandwich. This recipe serves 4 people
