Superfood Pesto 

IMG_0050
The past two weeks I have been adventuring around the amazing country of Sri Lanka. What a once in a lifetime experience this was! I loved immersing myself in their culture and trying their flavoursome foods. I will be blogging about this soon, once I sort all of the pictures out; there’s thousands of them!

Now that I’m back, I have so many recipes that I want to share with you all. I really enjoy spending time in my kitchen and getting creative with food.

I love good strong flavours and this pesto has all of that, along with a creamy consistency it is a great addition to any dish. Simple and quick to make, I have combined mine with courgetti and roasted cherry tomatoes for a Mediterranean vibe.

Ingredients

  • A large handful of fresh basil
  • 2 garlic cloves
  • 1/2 tsp of spirulina
  • 3 tbsp of olive oil
  • sea salt
  • black pepper
  • a handful of walnuts
  • dash of lemon juice
