|Basil cashew pesto over mashed potatoes.|
I did find a container of cashews in my cupboard.
And so basil cashew pesto was born.
It turned out creamy and packed a great basil punch and the cashews added just a hint of sweetness that I loved.
The pesto made another appearance at lunch.
|Steamed green beans and sauteed mushrooms.|
|The mushrooms came out perfectly browned.|
|And then I smothered everything with pesto!|
2 large bunches of basil
1 Tbsp of olive oil
1/4 cup of cashews
2 Tbsp of water
2 cloves of garlic
salt and pepper to taste
Place all the ingredients into a blender, food processor or use an immersion blender and blend until you have a thick paste.
