Almond & Basil Paste 

A teaspoon of almond and basil paste makes an awesome topping for blinis.

A post shared by Rose Margesson (@theslimhour) on

1 cup almonds

Handful of basil

Splash of lemon

Pinch of salt

Water to dilute as necessary

Soak almonds for at least 4 hours. Then plunge in boiling water for 60 seconds.  Sit in the sunshine (optional 🙂 to shell almonds. They pop out of their skins easily! Blend all other ingredients.  Add a little water as necessary to make a smooth paste.

Serve on blinis, crackers or pasta.
