I love pesto not only because it’s healthy but also because it’s great with many different dishes. There are a few different options to make pesto. I make it with basil, olive oil, pine nuts (or nuts), parmesan and garlic. But, you can also add lemon for a more kids friendly version (or even take the garlic out). Another great option is to mix it with sour cream and use it as a dip.
Each of the ingredients in the recipe has it’s own health benefits and together this dish can be a part of a well-balanced diet. Basil is an excellent source of vitamins, promotes blood flow and is used in aromatherapy. Olive oil Contains Large Amounts of Antioxidants and has strong anti-inflammatory properties. Garlic is known to regulate blood pressure and blood sugar levels.
