Walnut Ginger Pesto

Please share!

I  always love playing around in my kitchen creating fun and fresh sauce ideas. Having grown up on eating loads of ketchup, mustard, bbq sauce and mayonnaise, I am super excited to no longer be hooked on the addictive qualities of these sauces and now make my own.

Here is a great pesto I made yesterday that can be served with your favourite pasta, spaghetti squash or zucchini noodles. You’ll see in the picture I used a spaghetti squash and I topped it with some of my Ra Energy seed mix to increase the nutritional value of each bite.
