Thai Basil Pesto

Marlene Baird, blogger at Nosh My Way, crafted this delicious recipe for Thai Basil Pesto

 that features AVOCARE Extra Virgin Avocado Oil. Her original posting can be found HERE. Enjoy!


2 cups Thai Basil (or Italian Basil)
¼ cup mixed nuts (such as peanuts, almonds, walnuts)
¼ cup Avocado Oil (I like Avocare)
1 teaspoon prepared ginger
1 large clove garlic
1 Tablespoon lemon or lime juice (I used Meyer Lemon)
1 teaspoon red curry paste
1 teaspoon fish sauce
1 Tablespoon creamy peanut butter
1 to 2 Tablespoons water as needed

Place all ingredients in a food processor, except the olive oil, and blend. Slowly add the olive oil in and blend until smooth, adding a tiny bit of water if needed. Store in the refrigerator in a small dish or jar and use within a few days, or make extra and freeze in a tightly sealed jar for later use.
