Malunggay Pesto

Adding a potent superfood like Malunggay (Moringga) in your Pesto recipe and substitute pine nuts for Pili (Wild Java) to make an already healthy recipe even more nutrient-dense but just as delicious


Malunggay Pesto


1 C Basil

1 C Malunggay leaves

2 cloves garlic, chopped

1 C Pili nuts

1 tsp salt

1/2 C extra virgin olive oil
