1 Bunch of Kale

1 Beetroot Spiralized

1/3 Cup Activated Pumpkin seeds 

Hand-full of Argula



2 Tablespoons of hulled Tahini

1/2 Cup soaked pine nuts **

2 Large lemons juiced

2 Tablespoons Nutritional yeast

1 Tablespoon of Coconut Oil

Black pepper

4 Basil leaves (fresh)

1/2 Teaspoon Liquid Amino’s or coconut amino’s

Pop your pine nuts the day/night before in your mason glass jar, add spring water, cover and soak for 6 to 8 hours.

To start making your sauce, add the drained pine nuts into your blender for 2 minutes until creamy, and then add in all the other ingredients.  Blend for 2 minutes.
