For the almond pesto

  • 5 cups (225g) of almonds

  • 3 tablespoons of lemon juice

  • Wash and dry your Brussel sprouts. Place them in a baking tray with a good drizzle of olive oil, salt and pepper. Give it all a really good mix and roast in the oven for 15-20 minutes until cooked.
  • While your Brussel sprouts are cooking in the oven make your pesto in the NutraMilk:
    • Place almonds in the NutraMilk container, press butter cycle, set and run for 5 minutes. Run for a few additional minutes if you prefer a creamier consistency.
    • Open container lid and add remaining ingredients for pesto.
    • Press butter cycle, set for 1 minute and run for 30 seconds.
    • Open container lid, add a little water to obtain the consistency you like, replace lid and set butter cycle for 1 minute, and run for 20 seconds.
  • Once your Brussel sprouts are cooked, remove from the oven and mix through your pesto. Sprinkle with a handful of roasted almonds and enjoy.
