Pesto Soup

Hi All,

You can eat this soup with a spoon, as a dip for dehydrated crackers, as a dip for crudité, or as a salad dressing.


Half cup pine nuts soaked overnight, rinsed
10- 12 medium size ripe and soft juicy tomatoes, quartered
Large bunch of basil leaves, washed and striped
Full thumb of ginger
1 avocado
Juice of 2 lemons
Bunch of chives, scallions, or thin leek
Pint of cherry tomatoes, save whole to serve with


Mix and liquefy in blender
If this is too much for your blender and you don't have a vitamix, split it up into 2 batches

First batch Start with ginger
Add lemon juice
Add pine nuts gradually, pulsing until mixed
Add green onions and some basil and a few tomatoes

Second batch add the rest with avocado last.

combine both batches.

Serve with cherry tomatoes and a spring of basil or parsley. Makes 1 - 1 ½ quart, serves 4 (or one very hungry big man)
