Ingredients:          

1 cup fresh Organic Basil, tightly packed

1/3 cup fresh Organic Parsley

1-2 small cloves fresh Organic Garlic

½ cup Raw Pine Nuts

Fresh Ground Pepper, to taste

1 medium Spaghetti Squash

1-2 medium Roma Tomatoes, chopped

 

Instructions:

  1. Preheat oven to 425 degrees F.
  2. Cut spaghetti squash length-wise down the middle and clean out “guts”. Place squash on baking pan, cut side down, and bake for 30-35 minutes.
  3. Place basil, parsley, garlic, pine nuts, and olive oil in a food processor and pulse until smooth consistency. Add salt and pepper to taste.
  4. When squash is done, remove from oven. Use a fork to “loosen” the strands so it looks like spaghetti noodles.

Dairy-Free DIY Homemade Fresh Parsley PESTO Quick and Easy Cooking Demo

Posted by Dr. Lori Arnold

I love creating and curating new recipes that give you a healthier version to the old classics.  I have several food intolerances as a result of many years of prescription stomach acid drugs (proton pump inhibitors, Nexium) that destroyed my normal gut flora and the protective mucosal lining that keeps food particles out of your blood.  As a result, I inherited several food intolerances because of “leaky gut” and the food actually getting into my blood system and causing an immune reaction.  It is A REAL BUMMER!  I love food and it makes it a challenge, to say the least.  My healing process is still ongoing so I find ways to be able to eat the foods I love… just modified versions.

In this QUICK video, I show you how to make a very simple fool-proof version of PESTO.  Prep is easy and cleanup is easy and you don’t need special equipment except for a standard food processor.  This dish is so versatile it is paleo, vegan, food-allergy friendly, gluten-free, dairy-free, sugar-free, and LOW-CARB!  Watch as I demo this recipe for you!
