I found the most beautiful heirloom tomatoes at my local grocery store the other day. I already had in mind what I wanted to make with these gorgeous gems. This recipe is all RAW and nut free.
4 medium heirloom tomatoes of different colors
2 cups fresh basil ( loosely packed)
4 cups spinach leaves
1/2 cup diced red peppers ( garnish)
1/2 cup diced orange peppers (garnish)
1/3 cup olive oil
1 cup gluten free oats
5 cloves garlic
3/4 teaspoon salt
1/2 teaspoon black pepper
Raw Basil Pesto
Combine all ingredients in a food processor until well incorporated. Pesto should still have texture and not be completely smooth. Add more salt and pepper to taste and enjoy.
Slice tomatoes about 1/4-1/2 thick rounds ( depends on how thick you like them). Arrange the spinach leaves on the bottom of each plate. Spread the pesto onto the top of the tomatoes and stack another tomato following the same procedure. Until you have a stack of 4-5 tomatoes. Drizzle with olive oil and sprinkle peppers over top as a garnished, if desired.
