DIRECTIONS

  • In a food processor, combine the basil, dandelion and/ or nettle, pumpkin seeds, hemp seeds, garlic, tamari, and salt. Process until well-combined. While the machine is running, slowly pour in the oil. When ready to serve, stir in the lemon juice to keep the sauce green and vibrant.
  • Tamari:
  • As you convert your kitchen to a place free from gluten and rich in nuanced and balanced flavors, you’ll swap your standard soy sauce for this High Vibrational Japanese version. Unlike common soy sauce, tamari is made without wheat. (Double check the package, as some tamaris do contain small amounts of wheat.) And, while both are made from fermented soy beans, tamari is a more-balanced, rich and delicate ingredient. Look for organic and non-GMO. Then, get right at it with a homemade batch of Tamari almonds. On a sheet pan, simply oven-roast the almonds for 20 minutes at 300°F. Remove and toss with a few spoonfuls of tamari. Then, return to the oven for 5 minutes more. We love these added to salads or dragon bowls.
