Nourishing Green Pesto

Basil is one of the oldest herbs known to mankind and has several magical health benefits. It has compounds that can help to alleviate anxiety and depression. Every time I smell fresh basil I am instantly calmed.

My Nourishing Green Sauce is my special take on a vegan pesto. I use it weekly on my gluten-free pasta. It’s also lovely drizzled over roasted veggies, tacos and the list goes on.
