Pesto make so many things go from blah to bling! Pesto pasta is an obvious choice, but you can serve it warm or cold using anything from angel hair, to fusilli to gnocchi. Use it as a spread on grilled vegetable sandwiches, thin it out by blending some extra water in and drizzle it over salad, dip into it with crudites, make a homemade pesto pizza or Italian flatbread, or pair it with baked potatoes. Whatever you do it’s fast to make and always feels like you made an effort – which, let’s face it, you did!

Ingredients

  • 1 cup Cashews (can be raw, soaked or not). Can sub pinenuts, walnuts, sunflower seeds, or pepitas

  • 3 cloves Garlic

  • 1/2 cup Nutritional yeast

  • 2 tbsp Fresh lemon juice

  • 1/2 tsp Salt

  • 2 cup Fresh basil. All out of basil? Use kale or arugula!

  • 1/2 cup Water, plus more as needed

Instructions

  • Add all of the ingredients to a food processor, and blend until smooth, scraping down the sides as needed. Add more water for thinner consistency.
  • Notes:
    1. Store in the refrigerator with a layer of plastic wrap on the top of the pesto to prevent color change.
    2. The pesto will thicken up in the refrigerator. If desired, thin it out with water or olive oil each time you use it.
    3. Freezes well for up to 4 months.
