vegan pesto | GF DF

There aren’t many things better than pesto….I used some lovely organic parsley (from Wholefoods House) & freshly picked basil from our garden for a fresh, sour, salty & rich versatile sauce / dressing / dip.

It’s vegan, gluten-free, dairy-free, sugar-free, grain-free.

INGREDIENTS
2 cups parsley & basil, total
1 tablespoon nutritional yeast (I use an organic one from Naked Foods)
2 tablespoons pine nuts
juice of half a lemon (you may not need all of it)
zest of half a lemon
2 tablespoons olive oil
OPTIONAL – to taste – chilli flakes & salt

METHOD
1.
Throw all ingredients into the blender plus a pinch of salt BUT NOT the lemon juice & olive oil
2. Slowly pour the olive oil in
3. Slowly pour HALF the lemon juice in, then when well combined, taste to see if you want to add more sourness
4. Tip into a bowl – it will make about 1/3 of a cup – perfect to dip sweet potato wedges in, in my opinion

I love your feedback – leave a comment, a like, or come say hi on Facebook or Instagram.
I hope you’ve all had a lovely weekend, filled with most of your primary food – relationships, physical activity & spirituality. Plenty of time for the fourth element (career) tomorrow 🙂
