This is my go to sauce for ‘jazzing up’ roasted veg, salads, perfect dip, on a pizza and goes wonderfully with any cooked grains, especially quinoa. I should probably admit I am just thinking of ways to eat this.
What you'll need:
2 cups fresh basil, leaves picked
1 bunch fresh parsley, leaves picked
1/2 small onion diced
1 garlic, minced or finely chopped
1/2 cup olive oil
1/4 cup cashews (opt)
2 tablespoon apple cider vinegar
1/2 teaspoon fine salt
pinch of red chilli flakes or fresh chilli (opt)
zest of 1/2 lemon
a good crack of pepper
place all the ingredients in a food processor and whizz, scraping down the bowl intermittently.
taste and adjust the seasoning, you might need more oil if too thick, more acidity either from a squeeze of lemon or vinegar or more salt
