Nutty recipes

Dear readers,

following my recent post, today I will entertain you with some nutty recipes:

First of all a very simple bread spread....

Green Olive & Almond Spread (serves 6 as an appetizer)


  • 1/2 cup pitted briny green olives
  • 1/4 cup unsalted (organic) almonds
  • 1 teaspoon fresh herbs to your likings
  • 1 teaspoon lemon juice
          • 1 tablespoon extra-virgin olive oil

And for all pasta lovers amongst you.....

Wholegrain pasta with walnut-tomato-pesto
(4 servings)

1 cup fresh basil leaves
1/4 cup slightly crushed walnuts
2 cloves garlic
6 oil-packed sun-dried tomatoes
2 tbsp grated Parmesan
1/2 tsp salt
1/4 tsp red-pepper flakes or some red pepper pieces 
6 Tbsp olive oil
12 oz wholegrain pasta (you know that it's good for you...)

Chop basil, walnuts, and garlic in food processor. Add tomatoes, cheese, salt, and red pepper. Pulse to combine, scraping down sides. Drizzle in oil with machine running. Process to a coarse paste. Cook pasta per package directions. Add 1 cup of cooking water to processor and pulse until smooth. Toss pesto with drained pasta in warm pot. If you do not have a food processor, use a knife and a fork as I do :)

Enjoy your health food!!!
