Walnut Basil Pesto
It seems like everyone is on the quest for a good pesto recipe. It is the question I get asked most! I think I have finally found a wonderful dairy-free recipe!
I use nutritional yeast to provide that slight cheesy, salty flavor. I also use raw walnuts in this recipe and I find that they provide the perfect texture and nutty flavor. PLUS walnuts are incredible for us, benefitting not only heart health, bone strength, but even brain function!
3 handfuls of basil
2 tablespoons of nutritional yeast
1/4 cup raw walnuts
1/4 cup olive oil
2 cloves of garlic
1 tablespoon of lemon juice
Himalayan pink salt
freshly ground black pepper
1) Place all ingredients in a food processor (I have tried with a blender and do not recommend) + BLEND!
