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)
kosher salt
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.

  1. This looks so good! A friend gave me a basil plant for Mother's Day and I was looking for a new way to eat it. Thanks for the recipe. I love your new site!
