  • 1 tbsp almond flour (optional)

I always like to have some pesto in the fridge. It is such a great condiment and definitely a staple in my house.

To make it, is easy.

  1. Blend the ingredients together in a food processor or Magic Bullet.
  2. If you like your pesto to be thicker, you can add almond flour to the desired consistency.

Note – A typical pesto recipe can include pine nuts and parmesan cheese. I personally don’t think pine nuts are needed, but you can certainly add pine nuts if you like them. As for parmesan cheese, I usually prefer to grate it on top of the pesto instead of having it mixed in the pesto. This pesto sauce is delicious with zucchini spaghetti.
