The intensity of all these flavors combined is impossible to explain. I love this pesto on crunchy rye crackers! I can also see it as a dip or a spread for raw veggies.

  • 2 c. fennel, bulb, fresh, organic
  • 2 oz. walnuts, raw, organic
  • 2 garlic, fresh, organic
  • 1/2 lemon, fresh, organic
  • 2 tsp. olive oil, extra virgin, unrefined and unfiltered, organic
  • 2 tbs. coconut oil, raw, extra-virgin, organic
  • sea salt, unrefined, & fresh ground pepper, organic to taste

Place the fennel, walnuts and garlic in a food processor till finely chopped. Add the lemon zest and juice, the coconut oil and olive oil and process or stir till they are all combined. Add the salt and pepper to taste.
