2-minute cashew nut, basil and garlic pesto recipe


This cashew nut, basil and garlic pesto  recipe is great standby to have in the fridge. It can be used is so many dishes such as pasta, on chicken, in a sandwich and or as an addition to a tapas board. Because of it’s versatility and the fact that it is so quick to make it’s a great pantry staple.

The other beauty of this pesto recipe is that it is suitable to so many diets. This pesto is vegan, paleo, whole 30, gluten free, dairy free etc

I was prompted to make this recipe because I had a friend over the other day who said that she can’t stand buying pesto because half the jar goes to waste. I showed her how to make her own smaller portion of pesto at home so that she never has to waste her pesto again. She was thrilled with the results and now often has her own homemade pesto in her fridge too.

My absolute favourite thing to do with pesto is to toss it into some pasta, to add baby tomatoes and olives and presto there you have a delicious meal.

    My developer is trying to convince me to move to .net from PHP.
    I have always disliked the idea because of the expenses.
    But he’s tryiong none the less. I’ve been using Movable-type on various websites for about a year and am nervous about switching to another platform.
    I have heard excellent things about blogengine.net.
    Is there a way I can import all my wordpress content into it?
    Any help would be really appreciated!
