Going bananas for zucchinis!
It’s their season, so let them shine!
And basil, oh so beautiful basil!
Let’s make pesto out of everything!
Didn’t have pine nuts, so I used raw unsalted almonds.
A little olive oil, a little Parmesan, Himalayan sea salt, and fresh garlic.
This pesto is pure magic! Use it with your favorite pasta, on crostinis or in a salad!
1 cup fresh basil leaves
1/4 cup raw almonds
1 garlic cloves
1 large zucchini, trimmed, cut into 1/2-inch pieces
1/4 cup freshly grated Parmesan cheese
1 green onion, chopped
Salt and black pepper
Blend basil, almonds, and garlic in processor until finely chopped.
Add zucchini, Parmesan cheese, and green onion; process until coarsely chopped.
Add a few tablespoons of olive oil to smooth out the mixture.
Using on/off turns, process until mixture is finely chopped.
