Dairy-Free (& Nut-Free) Pesto

(For more great recipes and all of the grocery shopping tips you need to ensure that you select the most additive-free versions of every ingredient you need to make hundreds of my recipes, check out my e-book “Eating Additive-Free“!

For this recipe, you’ll need:

2 cups fresh basil leaves, packed (~ 4 ounces)
1/2 tsp sea salt
1/2 TBSP fresh lemon juice
2 tsp raw honey
3 medium cloves garlic, minced
1/2 cup extra virgin olive oil
(12 oz. uncooked pasta, optional)

Toss everything into a food processor (except for the pasta!) and process until combined, stopping to scrape the sides a few times as needed.

Makes 3/4-1 cup of sauce. Freezes well for later use, so I make TONS of this when it’s basil season 🙂

If using for a pasta dish, cook 12 oz. pasta according to package directions. (We like the organic brown rice pasta varieties from Trader Joe’s.) Drain. Toss with pesto and serve!

Best price on organic gluten-free RICE PASTA!

This is, by FAR, the best price I’ve found on organic gluten-free rice pasta in Omaha, NE! The price at Trader Joe’s is just $1.99 for a 16-oz. package…and it’s certified organic! Prices are twice this high at many other stores…and for fewer ounces!

Spaghetti, penne and fusilli are the only 3 shapes/varieties available at Trader Joe’s, but they contain just: “organic brown rice and water.”
