Vegan Pesto

You can't go wrong with pesto. It's a delicious pasta topping or flavor enhancer for your dip. Dip happily or enjoy it on its own!


  • 1 1/2 cups fresh basil (loosely packed)

  • 1/3 cup olive oil (or other high-quality and flavorful oil)

  • 1 cup pine nuts (other nuts, such as almonds or walnuts may be substituted)

  • 5 cloves garlic

  • 1/3 cup nutritional yeast

  • 3/4 teaspoon salt

  • 1/2 teaspoon black pepper

  • 2 tablespoons lemon (or more to taste)


How to Make It

Step 1

Combine all ingredients in a food processor until nuts are ground. Pesto should still have texture and not be completely smooth.

Step 2

Add more salt and pepper to taste.

Step 3

It's ready to eat!
