Brazil Nut and Rocket Pesto

I love pesto, always have, always will. It is amazing. Always so flavoursome, rich and creamy. However, I eat it a lot, so I thought it was about time to change it up a little and add a few new flavours to this classic spread. I’ve tried a few new variations over the last few weeks, but this brazil nut and rocket/arugula version was without a doubt my favourite.

Makes 1 bowl

– 1 and a 1/2 cups of Brazil nuts

– 1/4 of a cup of water

– 2 large handfuls of arguala/rocket

– 1 handful of fresh basil leaves

– 2 juicy limes

– 2 tablespoons of olive oil

– salt

Optional: 1 tablespoon of nutritional yeast

This is the easiest recipe, it takes 3 minutes:

Simply remove the basil leaves from their stalks and juice the lime. Then place all of the ingredients into a food processor and blend for a couple of minutes until the pesto forms.
