This week I bough a huge bundle of basil from Victory Farms stand at the Byrd House Market for a dollar!!!
I put this on toast with some tomato slices. OMG! Yum! I am sure there will be lots of other stuff to douse with pesto.... hmmmm... any ideas from the peanut gallery?
|Oops! BASIL not BASILISK!|
So I had to make some pesto. But pine nuts are expensive... so I used raw cashews instead. The result.... DELICIOUS!!!
RAW CASHEW VEGAN PESTO:
1 bunch of Basil
5 cloves of garlic
1/3 cup EVOO
2 tbs lemon juice
1/3 cup nutritional yeast
1/2 cup raw cashews
salt and pepper to taste
add all ingredients into food processor and blend well.
The end result should look similar to this:
|PRESTO!!! PESTO!!! (I had to. I couldn't resist.)|
