Basil Arugula Almond Pesto

Basil Arugula Almond Pesto

I was craving pizza, so I made some GF/DF pizza for din. I used @simplemills Almond Flour Pizza crust, and made this delicious vegan pesto.

 

INGREDIENTS

 

🌱 1-2 c arugula

 

🌿 ¾ oz fresh basil (add more if you’d like – this is what I had at hand)

 

🌰 ½ c roasted almonds (if they’re salted, wait to add the salt until after you’ve added and processed all of the other ingredients). I usually roast them myself.

 

🌱 Pink peppercorns, to taste

 

🧂 ½ tsp salt, to taste

 

🫒 ⅔-½ c olive oil

 

🧄 3 garlic cloves

 

DEETS

 

Add all ingredients to a food processor. Process until all ingredients are broken down, and add a drizzle of olive oil if it’s too dry before scooping it out.

 

**To keep it low-histamine, I subbed the apple cider vinegar the crust calls for, with fresh pomegranate juice/can also sub with half tsp lime juice.**

 

**GF/DF/LOW-HISTAMINE**

 

PRO-TIP: I love to add 1-2 tsp of pesto to egg scrambles.
