Ingredients

  • 3 c firmly packed basil leaves (no stems)
  • 1 1/2 c almond flour (toasted)

  • 3/4 t salt
  • 4 T roasted garlic

Notes

I love pesto, and came up with this version to use the basil I am now growing, as well as making a change from the ordinary and using almond flour.

It will keep refrigerated pretty much indefinitely, or you can freeze it in ice cube trays for individual "servings"
