Author Notes: This pesto is so good, you'll never notice that it's dairy-free! Nutritional yeast adds cheesy flavor. Serve this in sandwiches, with pasta, or as a topping for thickly sliced heirloom tomatoes. —Gena Hamshaw
Makes 1 generous cup
cups tightly packed fresh basil
cup walnuts or pine nuts
1 to 2
cloves garlic, roughly chopped (to taste)
cup extra-virgin olive oil
Sea salt and freshly ground pepper, to taste
tablespoon lemon juice
tablespoons nutritional yeast
- Place the basil, walnuts or pine nuts, and garlic in a food processor fitted with the S blade. Pulse to combine, until the mixture is coarsely ground.
