  • 1 cup Brazil nuts, toasted
  • 2 cups fresh basil leaves
  • 1/2 cup grated Parmesan cheese
  • 2 cloves garlic, minced
  • 1/2 cup extra-virgin olive oil
  • Salt and pepper to taste
  • Lemon juice (optional, for added brightness)

Optional: Stir in a scoop of Morphus Fiberus to it to increase the fiber in your diet.


  1. Toast the Brazil Nuts: In a dry skillet over medium heat, toast the Brazil nuts for a few minutes, stirring occasionally until they become fragrant. Be careful not to burn them. Remove from heat and let them cool.

  2. Prepare the Pesto: In a food processor, combine the toasted Brazil nuts, fresh basil leaves, grated Parmesan cheese, and minced garlic. Pulse until the ingredients are coarsely chopped.

  3. Add Olive Oil: With the food processor running, gradually pour in the olive oil in a steady stream until the mixture reaches a smooth consistency. You may need to stop and scrape down the sides of the processor with a spatula.

  4. Season and Adjust: Season the pesto with salt and pepper to taste. If desired, add a squeeze of lemon juice for added brightness. Taste and adjust the seasoning as needed.

  5. Store or Serve: Transfer the pesto to a jar or airtight container. If not using immediately, you can refrigerate it. Pesto can be stored in the fridge for a few days, or you can freeze it in ice cube trays for longer storage.

  6. Enjoy: Use the Brazil Nut Pesto as a sauce for pasta, a topping for grilled chicken or fish, or a flavorful addition to salads and sandwiches.
