  • 2 cups packed basil leaves
  • 1/3 cup olive oil
  • 1/4 – 1/2 cup low-salt chicken or vegetable broth to thin mixture (optional)
  • Juice of 1/2 of a fresh lemon (This helps to keep the basil from turning brown)
  • 1/2 cup finely chopped walnuts
  • 2 cloves garlic, minced or crushed
  • 1/2 cup grated parmesan cheese
  • 1/2 teaspoon course sea-salt


  1. Place olive oil, basil, chopped walnuts, garlic and salt in food processor (or blender).
  2. Blend until thoroughly combined.
  3. Add Parmesan cheese and blend 5-10 seconds more.
  4. To thin the mixuture, add a little bit of chicken or vegetable broth in and mix.  Consistency should be thick and smooth, not lumpy.

Hot Serving Tip:  If you have stored the pesto in the fridge, just before serving, add 2 Tbsp of hot water or broth (the hot pasta water from your cooked pasta will work great).

Enjoy this fresh pesto sauce over veggies, as a healthy switch-up from red pasta sauce, and/or as a healthy marinade for your grilled fish, chicken, and meats.
