Choose your own adventure for Paleo-diet-friendly PESTO (recipe)

Recipe for generic Paleo Pesto

  • 1/4 nuts of your choice
  • 1-3 cloves of garlic
  • 1/2 to whole avocado (instead of the traditional Parmesan cheese)
  • one bunch of green herbs with stems mostly cut off (I like cilantro, basil, flat-leafed parsley)
  • a splash of lemon juice if you want which will give it the tang that Parm. chz usually does
  • 1/4-1/2 c. olive oil (I just eyeball it)
  • then salt and pepper to taste

First blend the nuts, garlic and avocado in a food processor.  Then process in the herbs then drizzle in 1/4-1/2 c. olive oil.


About thecrunchymamachronicles

I'm a woman obsessed with the amazing, everlasting, lavish, never-failing LOVE of the Heavenly Father through Jesus. It's my favorite thing to meditate on and to write about. His expression of love has radically transformed me from a joyless, miserable person to the me who is full of joy and love for others because of my radical identity as the beloved of God. I am devoted to my husband and to gently parenting our three boys with Jesus as my model of the ultimate gentle parent.
