Delphine’s Vegan Super Foods Pesto!

So Simple!   Pesto is a super versatile, fresh & sassy  summer food that can be slathered onto  pretty much ANYTHING you choose to eat.  Ready to check it out?

Start with one a cup of raw organic pumpkin seeds and place in a bowl with 1/2 tsp sea salt, the juice of one whole lemon and 3 tbs of nutritional yeast. Let these seeds soak for a while  (at least 10 minutes). Then take a healthy bundle of organic basil, remove the stems & place it in that food processor with the lemon, pumpkin seeds, nutritional yeast and sea salt.

add one ( or  two … if you’d like your pesto to be a bit more nutrient dense) medium sized cloves of raw garlic.

Next add 1/4-1/2 cup of extra virgin Olive Oil (depending upon the consistency you are looking for).

Olive oil is great for your skin and for the health of your organs (including your Heart and your Brain)… so as far as I’m concerned? the more  you use the better!

A little more sea salt (?) to your  taste preference,

You can sub Hemp seeds for a boost of  omegas 3 , 6 & 9  plus  other great brain and blood  healing , building and cleansing qualities. Using pumpkin seeds offers an anti parasitic twist, plus pumpkin seeds are great for balancing blood sugar, full of fiber, protein and minerals too.

Once you’ve got the soaked seeds, sea salt, garlic, lemon, basil, nutritional yeast in the food processor: Pulse  it up for a minute or two; until you find the smooth consistency you are looking for  and pour it over your steamed veggies, spiralized zucchini, or pasta.   You Choose!  If you are to subscribe to any dietary theory, go for fresh, bright, seasonal, organic foods.  Your body needs variety and your body needs bursting flavor.  ENJOY!!  Love Delphine (see links below for upcoming events!
