Primal + Keto Cooking Made Easy: Easy Peasy Pesto

Pesto is one of the most versatile sauces in terms of use—and preparation. An herb, a nut, some garlic and excellent quality oil are really all it takes to place together a tasty pesto sauce you can use on virtually any meat or veggie dish. (We like it as a topping or marinade for chicken!)

This simple, simple pesto recipe offers a perfect go-go recipe when you want that classic basil and pine nut pesto flavor. What will you use it for?

Simple Peasy Primal Pesto

  • 2 cups fresh basil leaves
  • 2 cloves garlic
  • 1/3 cup pine nuts

  • 1/4 teaspoon black pepper
  • 1/2 cup Primal Kitchen® Extra Virgin Avocado Oil (or olive oil if preferred)
