A Dairy Free, Nut Free Pesto
He did SO good and listened well to his commands. So of course he got a toy. We already have 'sit' and 'down' solid, but we have to work on puppy nipping and getting him to stay. Translation, just. calm. the. freak. down. sometimes.
This day meant -- easy dinner. I've been fighting some candida issues again and need to go back to #Whole30 or a detox, but tonight I cheated a little and had some gluten-free pasta, but I didn't want any nightshades to accompany it (read: tomatoes or tomato sauce) so I steamed some broccoli.
I looked at the pot and thought... "this is so boring. housewife points: 0." So I got creative. I threw a bunch of herbs in a pan with some chicken broth, dairy free butter and olive oil and threw it all in my Ninja.
Today was busy. We go to print in one week at the magazine, so my morning and afternoon were consumed with PR meetings and final edits. Followed by work for my record label, then the fourth day of the Healthy Gut Summit, and finally onto Petsmart for my little guys first training class.
What I got was an amazing homemade dairy-free, nut-free pesto that could go on anything. It's light and subtle with an amazing garlic flavor and aroma. Mr. Charming thought it was "great" and my dinner went from drab to fab in under 10 minutes.
