Raw food APPETIZERS can be versatile, quick and made with few ingredients.
SUN-DRIED TOMATO PESTO
In a food processor, combine:
1 c sun-dried tomatoes (they’re easier to blend when you cut them into pieces with kitchen shears first)
¼ c Italian parsley or basil, minced
¼ c pine nuts
¼ c EVOO
1 T lemon juice
1 clove garlic
¼ tsp salt (or to taste)
Process until well blended. Try as a filling for stuffed mushrooms: remove stems from approx 16 crimini or button mushrooms, marinade mushrooms in a bit of Bragg’s liquid aminos or nama shoyu (optional), fill with pesto and serve as-is or dehydrate for a couple of hours.
Can also use as a veggie dip, a topping for crackers, add to salads, or as a topping for raw zucchini spaghetti. Enjoy! 🙂
