2 oz. pine nuts
4 tbsp parmesan cheese or nutritional yeast
1/2 lemon pitted and halved
2 cloves garlic
1 tbsp olive oil
basil and parsley
Place all ingredients in a food processor and pulse to start mixing, use a spatula to push down sides and pulse until all ingredients are chopped and mixed. salt to taste.
Serve over pasta.
Serves 2: 350 calories each just for the pesto. 700 for whole batch of pesto. One cup of pasta adds 200 more calories per serving.
This is my favorite combination for pesto. The avocado takes place of the heavy oils usually in pesto. I don’t measure my basil and parsley, pretty much an even amount of both, at least a cup full of each. But if I have less, it’s also ok.
You can split it into four servings as well, but I like it really creamy.
