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