With basil coming into its prime right now in my garden, my mind and my taste buds always start to think and salivate about delicious yummy pesto.
Here are a few tips on how you can turn your regular pesto into a super food;
1. add pureed broccoli florets and receive the benefits of broccoli’s indole 3 carbinol’s anticancer power
2. use walnuts instead of pine nuts for added omega 3 fatty acids and get a more anti-inflammatory, heart healthy pesto
3. use extra garlic which is a super antimicrobial and it contains selenium which is a fabulous antioxidant
4. add in some lemon rind for its great zesty flavor and powerful anticancer component limonene
