  • 2 cups fresh basil remove stems
  • 1/2 cup pine nuts can substitute with walnuts
  • 1/3 cup extra virgin olive oil add more if needed to get desired consistency
  • 1/2 tbsp minced garlic
  • 1/4 tsp pepper
  • 1 pinch sea salt
  • 1 juice of a lemon


  • Combine all ingredients into a food processor or high powered blender.
  • Blend until smooth.


Serve on your choice of meat (chicken or fish are my go-to's).
This can be stored in an air tight container for up to 10 days in the refrigerator.
Can also be frozen and re-heated later!
