Gremolata~Pesto (AIP & low-FODMAP)

Gremolata Pesto 5One good sauce.

Is all you need.

To uplift your healing protocol.

Or the haiku version:

One good sauce is all

you need, to rock (& heal)

on the AIP~

Gremolata~Pesto

This could be your one sauce.

Like a one-love sauce, it’s universal. You can put it on everything and, in turn, it makes everything sing.

Keeping it Green~

Keeping it Green~

A gemolata is traditionally made from parsley, lemon zest & garlic. A pesto with basil, parmesan, pine nuts & olive oil.

This low-FODMAP fusion variation takes advantage of the low melting point of coconut oil to create a bright green sauce that is firm and crumbly when chilled & exultingly melty when it hits the hot components of your meal.

It omits the garlic, dairy and nuts. And uses a combination of fresh basil and spinach, making it slightly more of a food than a condiment.

Yet another way to get your greens on~.

Like both its Italian grandmothers, this combination gremolata~pesto is zesty & green.

And it makes more than you probably need for one meal, so you’ll have some leftover.

To brighten a mug of hot bone broth. Or add to salad dressing. Or crumble on top of tomorrow’s breakfast.

Quick Supper

Gremolata~Pesto is also the secret to a quick supper.

Bake or pan fry some fish. Saute some zucchini spears in turmeric. Top with your new special sauce.

Quick. Fancy. Green.

Gremolata~Pesto (AIP & low-FODMAP)

 from petra8paleoGremolata Pesto 4

  • 2 cups (packed) fresh Basil
  • 2 cups (packed) Spinach
  • 2 tablespoons Lemon Juice
  • 1 teaspoon Himalayan Salt (or similar)
  • 1/3 cup Coconut Oil
  • 1 tablespoon minced Lemon Zest (from an organic Lemon)

Put the Basil Spinach, Lemon Juice and Salt in a food processor.

Heat the coconut oil slightly, until just warm and liquified & pour it over the other ingredients.

Whirl, until a crumbly puree forms, scraping down the sides with a spatula once or twice, as required.

Transfer the mixture to a bowl or glass container, add the minced Lemon Zest and stir to combine.

Serve immediately or store in the refrigerator for good times to come~.
