The Perfect Pesto

Fresh pesto is one of the quickest and easiest sauces to make. Not only is the ingredient list short, but it also takes little to no time to prepare. Traditional pesto is prepared with parmesan cheese and pine nuts, however our Perfect Pesto can be made dairy free and nut free. Substituting the pine nuts for Hemp Hearts, this pesto becomes a nourishing Omega 3 rich sauce that can be used for sipping, spreading or tossing with your favorite recipe.
