A delicious & quick glutenfree, Nightshade free pistachio pesto.
Pistachios are my second favourite Nut closely behind Cashew nuts. Although as a lupie ( person that has Lupus) we are recommended to eat Walnuts and try to keep the consumption of other nuts petty low as they contain a lot of Omega 6.
I love pesto because it goes with pretty much anything. Pasta, fish, vegetables & even toast! you name it I’m sure there is a way of getting some pesto into or on it!
This semi chunky pesto is delicious it has both basil and parsley which compliments the pistachio nuts well. If you are not dairy free you can add Parmesan to the pesto.
