Vegan Pesto
  • ¼ cup chopped walnuts
  • ¼ cup pine nuts
  • 2 cloves garlic
  • 2½ cups loosely packed fresh basil
  • ½ teaspoon salt, or to taste
  • ¼ cup water
  • 1 tablespoon nutritional yeast flakes
  • ¼ cup olive oil
  • Fresh black pepper
  1. Put the nuts in a food processor. Add the garlic and pulse everything into fine crumbs. Add the basil, salt, nutritional yeast and water and puree until relatively smooth, scraping down the sides at least once to make sure everything gets blended. Stream in the olive oil and blend until well combined. Add pepper to taste.
