A wonderful classic basil pesto for vegan guests. If you soak the pine nuts overnight it gives a creamy effect. White miso gives depth of flavor and the smoked salt is a marvelous addition. —Angelica Page

Delicious! I halved the recipe for a perfect vegan pasta dinner. My family enjoyed it. I will definitely make this again. (one change: used regular salt, not smoked)

I love using miso! It always adds a little something extra!
