Fresh, fresh! Pesto homemade with basil from the farmers market. ๐Ÿ˜๐Ÿ๐ŸƒIMG_20180710_180208_980

๐ŸŒฟ a good handful of fresh basil leaves, about 1/3 cup packed (or 3 dozen-ish leaves)
๐ŸŒฟ a good handful of dark leafy greens like baby spinach or kale (sneaky greens!)
๐ŸŒฟ 2 Tbsp nooch
๐ŸŒฟ 2 Tbsp olive oil
๐ŸŒฟ 2 Tbsp white balsamic vinegar
๐ŸŒฟ 2 Tbsp water
๐ŸŒฟ 1/4 cup pine nuts
๐ŸŒฟ 2 cloves garlic
๐ŸŒฟ pinch of sea salt & cracked black pepper

Combine all ingredients in a food processor or blender and pulse until mostly smooth but still has a little coarseness. Adjust liquid or greens for desired consistency.

Serve over pasta (I used brown rice spaghetti), zoodles, rice or quinoa, or use as a sandwich spread or sauce for pizza or a nourish bowl (or other big salad). ๐Ÿ˜‹ Makes about 3-4 servings.
