Green Olive Pesto

Presto its pesto! Okay, I’m done being lame…for NOW. ┬áI’ll stop it now. ┬áOr will I? I guess you will just have to wait and see…

Is there anything easier than pesto? Or yummier? I don’t think so. Spread it over toast, stuff it into wraps, eat it as is, smear it all over a cauliflower steak and for a really fast week night feast, just toss it with pasta! ┬áThe one department I think pesto is really slacking in is pasta, but I think its just because I’m not a big pasta eater.

I’ve got this little hanging pot plant that’s just bursting out of its seams with parsley, so obviously this pesto had to be made with parsley. ┬áI used cashews, for a deeper flavour, but sunflower seeds works just as great. ┬áAlso you don’t have to use coconut oil, use olive oil. ┬áThat was just the only thing I had around, because you know. Health and stuff.
