My girls playing around, doing homeschool idol, even Simon was there !!!!
Rocken Raw Pesto
1 cup of almonds, soaked overnight in cold water. Throw away water and store in fridge till ready to use * see note at bottom
zest of one lemon
juice half a lemon
1 bunch of flat leaf parsley
1 garlic clove or more if needed, peeled
salt and pepper to taste
1/3 of a cup olive oil, plus more as needed
In a food processor add parsley (washed, steams and all) and then the rest of ingredients. Process till smooth. You will have to keep stopping and push the parsley down. Taste and adjust salt, pepper and garlic to your liking. If the pesto seems to dry add more oil a bit at a time till you get a constancy you like. Serve with lots of raw veggie and bread.
There are two reasons why you soak the almonds, one is it makes the almonds healthier and easier to digest and second soaking them makes them moister and sweeter, so the dip will have a creamier texture.
This pesto has no cheese, because it is raw (nothing cooked) enjoy xoxox
