This is just a classic, simple basil pesto recipe, but instead of just using fresh basil leaves, I added Moringa leaves or Malunggay as we call it locally. I also used cashew nuts instead of pine nuts. Pine nuts are so pricey around here and not all stores sold these nuts. Other than these two, garlic, Romano or Parmesan cheese, extra virgin olive oil, and salt and pepper were used to make the sauce.

Shrimp Basil-Moringa Pesto

Ingredients

  • 2 cups fresh basil leaves
  • 1 cup fresh Moringa leaves
  • 1 1/2 cups chopped cashew nuts
  • 4 cloves garlic, peeled
  • 1/4 cup grated Parmesan cheese
  • 1 cup olive oil salt and pepper to taste

Directions

  1. In a food processor, blend together basil leaves, nuts, garlic, and cheese. Pour in oil slowly while still mixing. Stir in salt and pepper.
