Broccoli and Macadamia Pesto Recipe
Broccoli contains sulphur compounds that are required for healthy liver detoxification and skin, and for the production of connective tissue throughout the body, including cartilage, bones and tendons. Broccoli is also a great source of dietary fibre and vitamin C, required to support bowel health and immune and adrenal function. Macadamia nuts are rich in heart-healthy mono-unsaturated fats that are beneficial for lowering total cholesterol levels as well as “bad” LDL cholesterol. These healthy nuts also provide plenty of protein and fibre, along with good levels of calcium, zinc, and magnesium.
Makes: 1 cup
- 140g broccoli florets, stems removed
- ⅓ cup raw macadamia nuts
- 1 cup fresh basil leaves
- Juice 1 lemon
- Pinch sea salt
- ⅓ cup olive oil
- 1 clove garlic
- Handful parmesan cheese, optional
- Steam broccoli for 6 mins or until tender.
- Place broccoli and other ingredients in food processor and blend until well combined.
- If you prefer thinner consistency, add more olive oil.
