My yummy breakfast this morning
What do you do when a friend gives you a ton a basil from his farm? Make pesto!!! I have found a way to incorporate it into every meal I've had today.
2 cups packed fresh basil
2 garlic cloves
1/4 cup toasted pine nuts ( I used raw almonds because that's what was in the pantry)
juice from 1 lemon
1/2 cup Parmesan cheese
1/2 cup extra-virgin olive oil (if you are trying to watch your calories, reduce the olive oil to 1/4 cup and add some chicken broth to thin it out)
Put all ingredients, except for the olive oil, in a food processor. Turn on, and drizzle the olive oil in. Enjoy :)
I enjoyed mine this morning with eggs, tomatoes, and goat cheese. Yum.
