Making a batch of pesto is simply throwing a few ingredients in the food processor and it is done. Having a batch in the fridge (or freezer!) ready to go opens up a whole new world of fast food!
My recipe is simply:
1/2 an avo
1 cup basil leaves
1 clove garlic
1 Tbsp lemon juice
2 Tbsp pine nuts (or other… yesterday’s batch was actually made with walnuts)
1/4 cup nutritional yeast and
a pinch of salt.
What is the sprinkley stuff on top? Vegan Parmesan. This is a game changer! 1/2 cup cashews, 3 Tbsp nutritional yeast, 1/4 tsp garlic powder and 1/2 tsp salt. Blend. da dahhh!
Both of the above have nuts so mixing them with any grain or legume = a complete protein.
The power of a good garnish hey 🙂
