Keto Pesto

I make my pesto garlic-free because of an allergy, but I don’t miss it at all! That being said, if you’re a garlic-lover 1-2 cloves would work very well in this.

The Goods

  • Large box of organic basil from Whole Foods (or Trader Joes)
  • 1 bunch of beet greens (spinach works well, too)
  • 1/4 cup pine nuts, plus more to taste
  • 1 lemon, halved
  • 1 cup olive oil, plus more
  • 1 Tbsp hemp hearts
  • sea salt & pepper

Add all ingredients into a food processor or high speed blender and blend until smooth. Add more oil as needed to get desired consistency. More pine nuts will make the recipe creamier/less tangy if your lemon was really juicy. Adjust all ingredients to taste.
