Almond Basil Pesto

Basil is an excellent source of vitamin K and manganese; a very good source of copper, vitamin A (in the form of carotenoids such as beta-carotene), and vitamin C; and a good source of calcium, iron, folate, magnesium, and omega-3 fatty acids.


• 2 cups basil, packed
• 2 cloves garlic
• ⅓ cup blanched almonds toasted
• ⅔ cup olive oil
• Salt and pepper, to taste
• ½ cup Parmigiano Reggiano grated


  1. Blanch basil leaves in boiling water.
  2. Shock in an ice bath (ice cubes and cold water).
  3. Combine the basil, garlic, parmigiano reggiano and almonds in a food processor and pulse until coarsely chopped.
  4. While the machine is running, add the oil and process until fully incorporated and smooth.
  5. Season with salt and pepper.

Serves 4
