Vegan Pesto Sauce, Fabulously Green!

Pesto has always been my favorite pasta sauce. I am amazed at how easy it is to make it myself at home. Any blender will work, but in this case, I used my Vitamix.

There are many variations of vegan pesto. Today I’d like to share my personal favorite pesto recipe.

1/2 cup of water
2 cloves garlic
1 tablespoon nutritional yeast
Juice from 1/4 lemon
1/4 cup raw pecans
As many basil leaves as you can get into the blender

Pesto ingredients in the Vitamix before blending.  1/2 cup of water, 2 garlic cloves, 1 tablespoon nutritional yeast, juice from 1/4 lemon, Himalayan salt to taste and add many basil leaves as you have our that can fit in the Vitamix.

Blend at medium speed for just a minute or two.

Use this sauce with your favorite pasta, rice, pizza or as a salad dressing!

Tonight I sautéed eggplant, shitake mushrooms, and broccoli Rabe. I also cooked a pot of brown rice and red quinoa. I’ll layer them on my dish and dress with the pesto sauce then garnish with sliced tomato and green onions.
