I absolutely adore this whole30 pesto with all it's fresh, garlic-y, cheesy flavors! Whether it's with Zucchini Noodles or simply used as a dip, spread, pizza sauce, salad dressing, or anything else - I love everything about it! While it's naturally low-carb, it's not naturally dairy-free or whole30 since a large part of the recipe usually consists of cheese.

How To Make Keto Whole30 Pesto
You'll need to start with fresh basil. The recipe does not work well with dried basil. Fresh is a must.
Remove the stems from your basil and add about 2 cups of basil leaves to the bowl of a food processor. Then, add garlic, pine nuts, blanched almond flour, sea salt, fresh lemon juice, sesame seeds (optional), onion powder, and nutritional yeast.
Place the lid on your food processor and give your basil mixture a good couple of pulses. Then, while the food processor is running on low, slowly drizzle in some olive oil.
