Vegan Pili Nut Pesto Recipe

Posted on October 6, 2020

Vegan Pili Nut Pesto

Homemade Pesto is the perfect way to elevate any meal—and it's easy enough to whip together on a week night!

Pili Nuts make the perfect substitution for Pine Nuts in this pesto, as they offer a delectable creaminess and subtle nutty flavor. Although we love to serve this pesto with fresh pasta, it's also great on sandwiches, tofu scramble, and more!

Ingredients

  • 3 cups tightly packed basil leaves (about 3 oz)
  • 4 garlic cloves, roughly chopped
  • 1/2 cup Himalayan Salt Pili Nuts
  • 3 tbsp nutritional yeast
  • 2 tbsp lemon juice (optional)
  • Sea salt, to taste
  • Black pepper, to taste
  • 1/2 cup extra virgin olive oil

Directions:

  1. Combine the basil, garlic, pili nuts, nutritional yeast, lemon juice, sea salt and black pepper in a food processor. 
  2. Pulse until roughly chopped. 
  3. With the motor running, slowly pour in the olive oil, stopping to scrape the sides as needed, until the mixture forms a thick paste. 
  4. Serve immediately or keep refrigerated until needed.
