This pesto is nut free, seed free and dairy free. When you remove these elements, does it still taste like pesto? Yes, very much so. Garlic and basil always star in this recipe so leaving out the cheese and pine nuts does not change much.

I must warn you. The garlic is potent. Best to enjoy in the company of fellow garlic lovers!Nut Free & Dairy Free Basil Pesto
