Sun-dried tomato Pesto
This is my favorite to bring to a non-raw party with fresh veggies and raw crackers. The BEST part is the left-overs can be thinned with water to make a great salad dressing or add a little to top a raw burger.
1 cup pine nuts
¾ cup sun-dried tomatoes, soaked 3 hrs.
3 tablespoon lemon juice
½ cup olive oil
4 clove garlic
2 tablespoon fresh basil, minced
1 tablespoon fresh oregano, minced
¼ teaspoon fresh ginger, minced
1 teaspoon sea salt
This also comes from Raw Transformation by Wendy Rudell.
Squeeze water from tomatoes and save. Place everything in the Vita-mix and blend ‘til smooth. You’ll need to add the SD tomato water a little at a time to get this to turn over in the blender.
I only use 1 clove garlic and I sub soaked sun seeds for the pine nuts most times.
