Pesto with Basil & Almond


In the blender jar today we have pesto made with basil and almonds.

I start with 2 cups of Basil cut from the yard. I add 1/4 cup of roasted almonds. All I had was raw almonds so I soaked then in the 2/3 cup if oil the recipe asked for. I subbed the olive oil for a 50/50 olive an coconut oil mix. I was also missing the Parmesan cheese so I subbed an Italian mix and a chunk of goat cheese.
I hit the blend and came out with a nutty pesto sauce that Kendra approved of. We will test it over pasta tonight.
