Pesto Sauce

  • 80 grams basil
  • 1/4 Cup Olive Oil
  • 100 grams Raw Cashews
  • 1 Juice of a lime
  • Salt & pepper to taste


  • 250 g Gluten Free Spagetti
  • 1/2 Can Coconut Milk
  • 1/2 Lime
  • Salt & pepper to taste


  • In a food processor, blend your basil, oil, cashews, lime, salt, and pepper until it forms a paste. Taste and adjust if it needs more seasoning. It will be a thick paste
  • Boil pasta according to packet instructions, drain and set aside
  • Pour coconut milk into a pan and warm slowly and then add the basil pesto mixture you made earlier, as well as another good squeeze of lime and salt and pepper to taste
  • Now toss the pasta back into this pesto mixture, ensuring the pasta is fully coated and serve while hot!
