Lemon Basil Pesto

This pesto is so yummy that you can spread it on crackers and raw veggies. The zest of the lemon and the sweetness of the basil are a perfect blend. Olive oil and lemon juice make a perfect combination to stimulate your liver and gall bladder. The zucchini adds fiber and crunch. You can serve this as a main dish or a side salad. Bon Appétit!

In a food processor add the following:

1 cup of soaked almonds

1 Tbs. of grated lemon peel

While the processor is on, slowly drizzle:

If the mixture is too thick, add more oil.
