Create a zesty pesto using Young Living’s Basil and Lemon essential oils.
What You Need to Make Zesty (essential oil) Pesto:
- 4 cups lightly packed fresh basil
- 1/2 cup toasted pine nuts
- 4 cloves garlic
- 3/4 cup olive oil
- 3/4 cup Parmesan cheese (shredded)
- 4 drops Young Living Basil essential oil*
- 4 drops Young Living Lemon essential oil*
Mix all ingredients in a food processor.
Serve over chicken or pasta.
Extra Tip: Try Young Living’s new Einkorn Pasta, this pasta is made from an ancient grain which is usually better tolerated by those on a gluten-free diet. In general, it is a much healthier choice than whole wheat or regular pasta. It is also being grown over at the Young Living France Farm. And… it is absolutely delicious!
*Young Living’s essential oils are food grade, which is not common in the essential oil industry – do not substitute other brands in recipes as they are not likely to be safe to eat. Only the essential oils coming from edible herbs are edible, please read the label to determine which essential oils can be consumed.
