(with SIBO /Dairy free & FODMAP free variations)
This is one of my favourite recipes for a fast snack, as it really only takes a few minutes in the blender and it’s ready to go!
The macadamias are a great source of high quality fat, and are also rich in thiamine (B1), manganese and copper. Combine this with the anti-bacterial properties of basil, and you have that unique combination of deliciousness and health! There are also SIBO & FODMAP variations for this recipe.
Large bunch basil
40g extra virgin olive oil
1 tbsp apple cider vinegar
Pinch of Celtic or Himalayan salt
Pepper to taste
Optional: 1 clove of raw garlic (this is not SIBO or FODMAP friendly)
Optional: 40g Parmesan cheese (this is not FODMAP, SIBO or Dairy Free diet friendly)
Pulse all ingredients in food processor, so it is still chunky, and eat with vegetable sticks.
I also love to spread it thickly on chicken breasts or thighs, then sprinkle more crushed macadamias, and cooked at 175 degrees for 25-30 minutes.
