This nutritious recipe was one I learnt on a cooking weekend during my first year studying nutrition. It tastes heavenly and has since become a staple in my home. The best part is that you can whip up a batch in under 10 minutes. It's also jam packed full of vitamins and minerals such as selenium, zinc, magnesium, cysteine, iodine, vitamin A and C. I have a nut allergy so when I make this I swap out the brazil nuts for additional seeds and add in a few drops of selenium, however I wanted to give you the original recipe as it's super nourishing for your body.
It's a great recipe to help assist the body's natural detoxification process. When making this in our cooking class we learnt that 2 teaspoons daily for three weeks can help to detox your body and help remove heavy metals (alongside a healthy diet and lifestyle choices of course).
This pesto seriously tastes amazing, I highly recommend you try it out! I love to enjoy it with vegetables, grilled meats and fish, spread on toast, thinned with a little extra oil for dressing a salad, as a dip or to garnish a soup.

1. Place nuts, seeds and garlic into a food processor and blend.
