prep time: 10 mins
cook time: 0
feeds: 5 portions
1/4 cup of roasted ground almonds
1/4 cup of nutritional yeast
3 cloves garlic
240g sundried tomatoes
1 tbsp balsamic vinegar
30g of basil
4 tbsp quality olive oil
salt and pepper to taste
1. Using a heavy skillet heat the almonds over medium heat for 2 - 3 minutes until they begin to brown and give off a rich and tasty fragrance. Toss regularly as they can burn very quickly so you'll need to keep a close eye on them throughout.
2. Remove the almonds from the pan to cool, then add them to a food process to blitz into little pieces.
3. To a food processor add all ingredients and pulse until you reach desired consistency.
tip: if your sundried tomatoes are very very stiff, you can soften them by leaving them to sit in a bowl of warm water for 15 minutes before making the pesto.
I love love love this recipe with pasta and quinoa!
