Vegan Basil Avocado Pesto

Vegan Avocado Pesto
I served my pesto on sautéed purple potatoes. It was so good, I made it again the next day for lunch! To prepare the potatoes, simply slice them, then cook them over medium heat in coconut oil. Sprinkle with sea salt and pepper.

The other day I was looking for a delicious, quick, healthy lunch to feed the kids and my mother in law, so I came up with this Vegan Basil Avocado Pesto.  It turned out super yummy, and both kids and adults loved it!  JJ is the only one who didn’t like it, but he’s my youngest and most picky eater.  He’s slowly come around and will eat lots of veggies now, but I decided not to push this on him!

All of the ingredients in the pesto will help your body be healthy and strong!  Avocado, cashews, and olive oil provide you with healthy fats. The avocado and cashews also bring protein to the table.  Even the pink himalayan salt carries trace minerals that are essential to your well being (you may already know that if you’ve read my post on Egg Salad).

For this article I’d like to focus on the health benefits of basil, because there are many!  Dark green herbs tend to be good at detoxifying your body, and basil is particularly good at cleaning out and strengthening your kidneys.  That is especially good news for diabetics, whose kidneys may have had to work extra hard to filter through excess sugar in the blood.  Basil is also anti-bacterial, anti-inflammatory, and promotes cardiovascular health.

Jesus said, “I have come that they may have life, and have it to the full!”  Freedom from food addictions is part of having a truly full life.

  2. Combine all of the ingredients, except water in a small blender or food processor. Run it until the sauce is smooth, adding water as needed to loosen it up. Enjoy!
