Four-Ingredient Orange Macadamia Pesto Recipe

April 24, 2019

This no-oil pesto recipe gets its creaminess and rich flavor from macadamia nuts and its brightness from oranges! Makes about 1 cup

Ingredients

  • 3 cups of fresh basil leaves
  • ¾ cups of macadamia nuts
  • 1 orange, zested and juiced
  • 2 teaspoons of orange zest
  • 2-3 cloves of garlic, peeled
  • Sea salt

Instructions

Combine the basil, macadamias, zest and garlic in a food processor and pulse unit coarsely ground. (If you are using whole macadamias, pulse them a few times alone, before adding the remaining ingredients.) Slowly add about a quarter cup of orange juice, until and pulse until fully incorporated.  Stop, scrape the sides of the food processor with a rubber spatula, and pulse again. Add sea salt to taste. Serve it with Sweet Potato Papardelle, over eggs, as a salad dressing, with grilled meats and vegetables, as a dip -- or even a little spoon of it all by its lonesome, as a treat. Pesto browns quickly, but it will still be fresh d delicious for several days. Store it in a tightly sealed glass container and refrigerate for up to one week. orange macadamia pesto recipe Keka Schermerhorn is creator and curator of Fueled By Sunshine, an online portal for healthy, gluten-free eating and lifestyle info.
