Thanks so much for sharing, Thanks so much for the lovely review, Colleen. Now that I have all the ingredients on hand, this will be so easy to make when I want it in the future again. I have tried this with walnuts and sunflower seeds, and it is the bomb! It’s soooo good! We don’t use oil so I put white beans (I read that idea on another recipe) in it to thicken and give it more body. This pesto is divine. Glad to find a pesto recipe without pinenuts as my daughter is allergic so I never get to make pesto. I just slowly added it till it got to the consistency I liked. Ok. Had to fess up….I used this to make a creamy pesto sauce. Your peanut butter cookies are next!? We used raw, but roasted (lightly) can work, too! Taste and adjust seasonings as needed. The best for preserving it would be to pour the pesto into ice cube molds, freeze, and store up to 1 month or more. Sorry to hear this one wasn’t for you, Billie! Thank you, Dana!! Delicious. Plus hemp hearts and walnuts, and then I added chunks of marinated tofu and sliced sun-dried tomatoes, The only change I made was that I toasted the pine nuts before adding to the processor. Thank you for the recipe! Thanks! Yay! This will definitely be my go to recipe for pesto. The nutritional yeast supplies a nominal amount of sodium- most of it comes from the sea salt. Or mix a little of both, which I prefer doing. Thanks for the lovely review! Really yummy, I made a half batch and I added too much nutritional yeast and I made it a little salty but it was still awesome. The base is fresh basil, pine nuts, and garlic with a splash of lemon juice for acidity and brightness. Added some avocado for creamier paste… turned out great! Combine the potatoes, 1/2 of the red onion, jalapeño, bell pepper, olive oil, paprika and chili powder in a bowl. Hi! It was perfect! i love them all!! Wow! can u explain for in simple English language so i learn that. It’s super helpful for us and other readers. It honestly didn’t even need the lemon (although next time I’ll give it a try with). Thanks for sharing this! Yet another amazing vegan version of a traditional dish. Think kale, hemp seeds, and flaxseed oil. (If avoiding oil altogether, sub the oil with vegetable broth or just use all water.). This recipe is a hit for our family and so easy to make. Stir to coat evenly. I love your website and all your recipes, but this is my favorite. Tossed it with pasta and steamed broccoli for dinner. Lovely! I’m intolerant to yeast, is there a substitute or maybe just leave it ou. Whoop! Love, love, love this recipe. Delish! Nice and easy however 3 cloves of garlic was way too much, it killed the rest of flavours, I can still taste it the next morning. When kale is bright green and beginning to wilt, turn down heat slightly and add crushed garlic, chilli flakes, salt and pepper, all to taste. Where do you buy it? Forgive me I did not measure any of the ingredients out carefully but added by eye!! So if you want a vibrant green pesto sauce try sticking with the pine nuts or maybe pumpkin seeds instead. This is an awesome pesto to pair with meatballs as well as grilled veggies and vegan pasta. Bear in mind that if you want a stronger flavor, pour just a little bit of water into the mix and don’t save on olive oil. Slather this pesto on fresh kalamata olive bread, pour it over hot pasta, or make it the sauce for an olive and tomato pizza… the possibilities are endless. Once again….you hit it out of the park with this one!!!!! I slightly increased the walnuts and olive oil, decreased the water, otherwise did it as written. =) Questions: 1) my pesto doesn’t look as green as yours. I have made this numerous times. omg i think i ate it in 1 minute!! Can I make this without the nutritional Yeast? i love you always, thank you. Can I use coconut oil instead of olive oil? Thank you! Sorry to hear that was your experience, Veronika! We are so glad you enjoy it! My boyfriend recently went vegan and I’ve been experimenting with new recipes for our favorite dishes. xo. it’s fabulous! If I wanted to use scapes instead of garlic cloves, how many would you suggest? Thanks for the feedback, Jim! YUM! Made with just five simple ingredients, this one-pan dish is packed with protein, fibre and flavour. Hello, I just found your recipe and it looks awesome. Excellent flavor. We wouldn’t recommend that in this recipe. Melodie. I may never buy pesto again! They are always dependably delicious!! It’s the perfect plant-based spread for Italian dishes and more! Definitely will make in batches to freeze, Whoop! Perhaps check out this recipe as a guide. Thanks for sharing! I was wondering if it freezes well so that I can enjoy it all winter long? It was perfect. :) Awesome and fast pesto! Thanks so much for the lovely review, Emmi. I wish I had thought to take a picture. Stir until the pasta is evenly coated. Pine nuts are monocot seeds. Thank you so much all your recipes are very flavorful. Perhaps next time add in 1 tsp at a time to get the right amount. Cheers! I did as the directions said except I only used 2T water and 1T olive oil. I loved the yeast flakes idea as it did really make it cheesy! The taste was perfect. Hey Dana, can you do the same and use coriander leaves? So incredibly fast and easy to make and it was delicious!!! Next time, would you mind leaving a rating with your review? Then I used only olive oil vs olive oil and water. I am allergic and do not know what to use, thankyou! Thank you so much for the recipe It is so tasty and easy to make. I make it ALL the time with basil from my garden. Added the pasta and some fresh cherry tomatoes. Love this pesto! I followed her recipe to a T and it simply didn’t taste right and I’m a HUGE pesto lover. Excellent! My daughter is vegan, and I am rapidly following in her footsteps due to her influence. For the pesto, I only needed to add 1 Tbsp of olive oil and 1 Tbsp of water. If you are not used to the nooch flavour, I would add significantly less. Garlic cloves were huge so I only used two). Xo. The only issue was the pasta was a little dry but I think it was due to not serving immediately.
