No Pine Nut Pesto

Wrote a whole post and lost it. Hate that! Therefore this one will be short. Had tons of basil last year, didn’t realize you could freeze pesto, found a great pesto recipe, possibly from here, that uses almonds instead of pine nuts. Oh and I got an awesome food processor. Pesto freezes really well. You’re welcome.


1/4 c almonds (toasted at 450 for 5-10 mins)
3 cloves garlic
1.5 c fresh basil leaves
1/2 c olive oil
1 pinch nutmeg
S + P to taste

Combine all in food processor.
