Homemade Pesto for Two

low FODMAP foods - Homemade Pesto

Growing up my parents would buy pesto from the grocery store but it was only for special occasions since the store bought jars were always so expensive.  If only I had known how EASY and inexpensive it is to make it on your own.  Now I make pesto whenever I want since I have the ingredients already on hand.  Plus it is a great way to use fresh basil before it goes bad.  It will stay fresh in the refrigerator for up to a week.

Not only is this recipe garlic-free and dairy-free which is impossible to find in the store but it has a multi-purpose use when cooking.  I use it on top of pasta, in a burger, and on fish like this salmon recipe.  Let your imagination go wild!  You can thank me later when you impress yourself and your dinner guests with this low FODMAP foods.
