Easy Breezy Lemon Pesto!
I am 50% Italian and 100% dietitian, so it’s always one of my goals to integrate my favorite italian foods into a healthy lifestyle! Extra Virgin Olive Oil aka EVOO is a staple in many people’s kitchens for a good reason, it’s got heart healthy fats, it’s versatile and it adds delicious flavor, but not all EVOO’s are created equal and you can taste the difference in quality.
Botticelli EVOO contains the highest quality olives sourced from the most exclusive regions in the Mediterranean. You can get free shipping on online orders with code: betterwithbotticelli ❤️ I love using this EVOO to make pesto bc it is so flavorful from the healthy fats and so versatile in so many dishes! Bonus: for those of you following a keto/ low carb lifestyle, pesto is an amazing keto-friendly sauce/ condiment to jazz up your favorite dishes! Here’s a quick and easy recipe for my Lemon Pesto: Lemon Pesto made #betterwithbotticelli 1️⃣ 2 cups of fresh basil 2️⃣ 2-3 cloves of garlic 3️⃣ ¼ cup of pine nuts or walnuts 4️⃣ ¼ cup of grated parmesan cheese (freshly grated is best, but you can always use the already grated in the jar) 5️⃣ 2 tbsp of fresh lemon juice 6️⃣ 2-3 tbsp of Botticelli Extra Virgin Olive Oil Blend everything together in a food processor and serve over chicken, pasta, vegetables, mozzarella, etc. Store in an airtight container in the fridge!
