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.
- 2 cups fresh basil
- 1 tbsp garlic cloves - minced
- ½ tbsp lemon juice
- ¼ tsp salt
- ¼ cup olive oil
- Place all ingredients in a food processor and pulse 3 minutes or until completely pureed.
- Add in ½ tbsp of nutritional yeast if you want a cheesy flavor.
- Substitute up to 1 cup of the basil with spinach or kale.
