I generally avoid dairy when I can these days, I'm not intolerant but I must admit I feel a lot lighter and leaner when I do. I was lucky enough to hit up the Foundermade wellness conference last month and discovered Brami Beans aka pickled Lupini beans. Awesome as a snack, or even with a cheeky glass of wine. Anyway I got experimenting and ahhh hello creamy pesto!!! I had it with parsnip noodles and shrimp but the options are endless.
1 pack shelled brami beans (pop beans out of shell)
7 tbs nutritional yeast
2 Big Handfuls of fresh basil
1/2-1 cup of almond milk
2 cloves of garlic
- Blend all ingredients in a bullet but only 1/2 cup of milk to start. Check consistency. Add more milk and blend again.
- I made parsnip noodles and cooked with shrimp and garlic but as I said earlier this can be used on anything, even as a stir through sauce at the end of the dish.
