Vietnamese Pesto

I just finished making my first Vietnamese Pesto and feel so excited about it, I am going to share the recipe with our internet community.
I always wanted to make a pesto here in Vietnam, but finding pine nuts and the original italian basil is not so easy, so I created a pesto with all Vietnamese ingredients. 
This pesto is packed with antioxidants as it is high in Vitamin E and C protecting your cells from free radicals.
Most people use Pesto traditionally with pasta, which is high in carbs and calories. Try swapping pasta with vegetables for a lower carb option. 
Try it on vegetables, as a dip for carrots, cucumbers or broccoli or as a spread on your Banh My. It goes also very well with your classic Mozzarella Tomato salad.
Vietnamese pesto is high in fat and calories, but also contains many nourishing ingredients. As with all good things in life, this vietnamese pesto is healthy, in moderation. 
And now let’s take a look on how to make your Vietnamese Pesto.
