Here is my basic basil pesto recipe. You can toss it with pasta, use it in lasagnes, mix it with Vegenaise for a pesto mayo, or toss it in salads and quinoa. This pesto recipe has been updated to use no oil - its much healthier now and I doubt you could taste the difference!
Makes about 1 cup
No Oil Basil Pesto
- 4 oz fresh basil
- 2 garlic cloves
- 1/4 cup whole almonds (or walnuts)
- 1/3 cup nutritional yeast
- 1 cup water
In your Vitamix, food processor or blender, combine all the ingredients and blend until you get a smooth sauce.
