ZESTY BASIL PESTO |V|GF|OG|

Updated: Mar 25

I mean, does this really need any introduction? Pretty sure pesto is a world renowned superstar. I love my pesto super zesty and super chunky, you can blend it up as much as you like but in MY humble opinion the chunkier the better 😁!


🍽 S E R V I N G S

1 cup


🥗 I N G R E D I E N T S

2 cup fresh basil leaves loosely packed (you can keep some of the stalks in, but remove the thick ones)

¼ cup cashews/sunflower seed/pine nuts ¼ tsp asafoetida (optional)

3 tbsp fresh lemon juice (you can use 2 tbsp, but I like mine super zesty!)

3 tbsp olive oil

½ tsp salt

2 tbsp nutritional yeast

3 tbsp water

🌿 T H E M A G I C

1. Roughly chop the fresh basil leaves and stalks

2. Add all the ingredients except the olive oil and the water into the food processor (a food processor is better than a blender for this especially if you want to keep it chunkaaay)

3. Pulse a couple of times till combined.

4. Slowly pour in the oil and pulse

5. Lastly, add in the water and pulse a couple more times (add in more water depending on desired texture)


♡ Sprinkle a little love, say a prayer of gratitude and serve with love OR store in an airtight container/jar for 5-7 days in the fridge ❤️
