6 Jun

3 cups fresh basil leaves

1/2 cup walnuts

2 large garlic cloves

1/3 cup steamed broccoli

1 + 1/2 tablespoon lemon juice

1 + 1/2 tablespoon olive oil

1 tablespoon vinegar (white or champagne)

salt to taste

BeFunky_IMG_3717.jpgPut everything in a food processor and process away! I like it chunky because you can really taste the walnuts when it’s that way but it’s up to you how creamy or chunky you want it to be.

Simply spread about 2 tablespoons of it on your salmon and bake it in a preheated oven at 375 °F for 12 minutes. I served it with sweet potato, roasted red peppers, and steamed broccoli.
