6 Ingredient Pesto To Add to Your Meal Plan

toronto food and lifestyle blogger

I am a lover of sauce. It is my belief as a chef, foodie and woman of common sense that sauces are how we create dynamic, satisfying meals. But what I often see, that makes me go "hmmm" is people buying sauces that would be better homemade. 

And no, I'm not asking you to spend hours in the kitchen making sauces, instead I present to you a 6 ingredient pesto that will transform your meals!


  • 1 cup shelled raw pistachios, soaked 15 minutes and drained
  • 1/2 cup packed fresh basil leaves
  • 2 cloves garlic
  • juice of 1 lemon
  • 1/3 cup olive oil
  • Salt + Pepper to taste

Combine all the ingredients in a blender and combine until smooth. Add water if needed. Et VOILA, a sauce that took you 6 minutes, with six ingredients.

You're Welcome ;)
