- ½ medium size zucchini
- 1 medium size tomato, chopped
- 1 tablespoon pine nuts, soaked 15 minutes
- 2 tablespoons cold press olive oil
- ¼ cup fresh basil
- 1 tablespoon water
- ½ teaspoon fresh garlic, minced
i used the flat blade on my spiral slicer to make the zucchini into flowering strips. i chopped up the tomatoes and placed on top. for the pesto sauce – i put the rest of the ingredients in my magic bullet and whipped up. i don’t like a lot of olive oil, so i added some water. as you can see, my pesto is a bit thick, so you could add more olive oil if you like. if you aren't worried about eating 'raw', you could just use a store-bought pesto... but i recommend trying your hand at making it fresh. there are any number of recipes on the internet.
