Pesto is incredibly versatile and can provide both colour and flavour to your meals. This silverbeet based pesto is vibrant in both colour and flavour and is free of gluten, dairy and sugar.
Most pesto’s have lots of garlic in them but l haven’t put any in this recipe as l react badly to it, but if you love garlic add a clove or two.
Three large silverbeet leaves
A handful of fresh flat leaf parsley
1/4 cup extra virgin olive oil (use more or less depending on the consistency you want)
1 dessertspoon organic apple cider vinegar.
1/2 cup raw cashews
Juice of a small lime or 1/2 a large lime (or all of it if you love lime)
Spring onion green tops( 1 or 2 pieces chopped depending on their size)
Pink rock salt and black pepper (season to taste)
Give it all a whiz in the food processor until well chopped and blended. Have a taste and see if any adjustments need to be made such as more oil or seasonings. I served it with both hot and cold meals and it was so delicious and added a real zing to the meal.
