Creamy Pesto Sauce [ AIP, Paleo, dairy free, egg free, nightshade free, nut and seed free]

This is the “creamy pesto sauce” I made to go with the gnocchi recipe last night. It’s easy, packed with nutrition and completely convincing! I can’t take credit for it though, because all I did was add a load of blended fresh basil leaves to He Won’t Know It’s Paleo’s queso dip recipe!

Creamy Pesto Sauce:

1 batch of queso (I omitted the carrots and added a little turmeric powder)
2 to four bunches of fresh basil leaves (I used Thai basil)
1 tsp garlic powder
1/2 tsp ground black pepper

Method:

– Make one batch of queso.
– Blend basil leaves into pesto consistency.
– Add basil to queso.
– Add garlic powder and black pepper to taste.
– Serve hot as a dip or sauce for AIP Gnocchi, chicken, or other Paleo pasta recipe!
