Pesto

Raise your hands if you like pesto. Okay, I can’t raise mine because I have to type, but my toes are up.

I LOVE pesto, but every time I’ve tried to make it, it’s been a massive failure. So I just buy it. But today I decided to give it a go one more time and GUESS WHAT?! It worked! I’m so excited that I want to share it with you.

If you add me on snapchat: nicolerenard, you can see my story that shows step by step how I made it. It’s so easy!

Put 1/2 cup Olive Oil in a Vita Mix or food processor.

Pour in 3 Tbs of pine nuts.

Turn the blender on and increase the speed to 7 right away. Blend until pesto is smooth and add some sea salt and pepper to taste.

Enjoy! Pesto is great on chicken, quinoa, bread, pasta or by the spoon. 😉
