I absolutely love fresh herbs and they are a great way to add flavour to any meal or snack. Basil is also packed with nutrients including vitamin K, manganese and copper.
This recipe was created as we can’t eat nuts, seeds or dairy at the moment, but I still wanted it to have the same kind of texture regular pesto does.
- 2 cups fresh basil
- 1/3 cup shredded coconut
- 1 Tbls fresh lemon juice
- Zest of 1 medium lemon
- ¼ cup olive oil
- pinch salt
- 1 clove chopped garlic (optional)
- Pop all the ingredients into a food processor and blend for 30 seconds. Scrape down the sides of the bowl at least once.
- Store in airtight container in fridge for up to 4 days
