Hello everyone, hope your day is joyful so far!๐Ÿค—

I love pesto sauce but I donโ€™t like the way they usually make in the store by adding cheese so I made my own pesto sauce today and it is quite simple. Main ingredients are: fresh basils, kales, garlics, almonds, salt&peppers, chili powder and olive oil. All blended in food processor and jarred. Itโ€™s good for a month in the fridge. ๐Ÿ˜‹๐Ÿ‘

Lunch/dinner: Organic, gluten-free Mung bean rotini mixed with pesto sauce along with steamed broccoli and asparagus. I love chopped parsley and sesame seeds sprinkles on this too.

Dessert: Jasmine tea ๐Ÿต and oatmeal cookie.๐Ÿช

As always, be inspired, be joyful, take a picture and Enjoy it! ๐Ÿ˜‹โค๏ธ

Thank you very much Kainan, it is one of my favorite pasta dish when it comes to pesto sauce. ๐Ÿ˜‹๐Ÿ‘

We can never have enough greens, add as many as you can ๐Ÿ˜

With the green theme, Iโ€™m thinking Iโ€™ll figure how to make matcha lava cake, gluten-free ofc ๐Ÿค”

Hope you manage your lunch well today. ๐Ÿค—

I used to go there many moons ago and I always got the tuna sandwich but they put so much mayonnaise in that so my highlight used to be that cookie. ๐Ÿ˜‚๐Ÿ‘

Looks like so much nutrition in this dish๐Ÿ‘๐Ÿ˜. Really impressive. Basil pesto sauce would be a wonderful addition to some of my meals so thanks for the idea. Much better than store bought sauces๐Ÿ‘๐Ÿ˜. Thanks for sharing ๐Ÿค—๐Ÿ™.

Thank you very much Zazenriver345! ๐Ÿค—๐Ÿ™

I love how this sauce turned out, itโ€™s great when I donโ€™t have to taste the Parmesan cheese they usually have in pesto sauce. Plus I can add more almond in there. ๐Ÿ˜‹๐Ÿ‘

Oh when you make it, pick the leaves from basils and kales, leave out the stems, donโ€™t blend them all in. ๐Ÿ˜‚

Enjoy your future meals with this sauce. ๐Ÿ˜‹๐Ÿ‘

I will remember to leave out the stems๐Ÿ‘๐Ÿ˜‚. They love to add in cheese to everything ๐Ÿ™„. Americans cant get enough ๐Ÿ˜‚๐Ÿคฃ.

I just donโ€™t like the typical smell n taste of Parmesan cheese. Actually Iโ€™m onto making my own Vegan cheese now, so simpleโ€ฆcashew milk, water and lemon juice. I need to get my cheese cloth filter though ๐Ÿ˜๐Ÿ‘

Excellent idea๐Ÿ‘Œ๐Ÿ˜, Cant wait to see how it comes out๐Ÿ‘€. I'm sure it will be good ๐Ÿ˜Š๐Ÿ‘.
