Artichoke Pesto Recipe

This is wonderful to dip veggies into, and is a perfect little healthy appetizer to bring to an art show opening. Leftovers work well as topping to fish, or as below, in an omelette.

And it couldn’t be easier; it takes practically no time at all to make.

This is nut-free, dairy free, and vegan– which most pestos are not– so everyone can eat it.

1 bunch of fresh basil leaves
2 garlic cloves, minced
1 Tablespoon lemon zest
