Spaghetti with basil pesto, walnuts and water kefir

I love Summer because of the choice of fresh fruits, vegetables and herbs, and fresh basil is one of my favorites (along with mint). This pesto is a fragrant and tasty option that goes well with gluten-free spaghetti and wonderful fresh tomatoes.

  • 400 g of cherry tomatoes or smaller tomatoes

  • 1 clove of garlic
  • 60 g of grated parmesan cheese
  • 1 tablespoon of fresh lemon juice
  • 75 ml of olive oil
  • 75 ml of water kefir
