Hemp seed pesto is a thing! Sub out expensive pine nuts and the parmesan for hemp seeds and vegan nutritional savoury flakes, and you have a deliciously fresh and super versatile vegan pesto that you can make with just about any herb, and goes with just about anything! Top a nourish bowl, add to pasta, serve with avo on toast, use as a pizza base, as a salad dressing - the list goes on!
3 cups herbs - we used a mix of basil and mint leaves
2 garlic cloves
1/2 lemon (juice)
1/4 cup olive oil
Salt & pepper to taste
1/2 cup The Wholefood Pantry Hemp Seeds
1 & 1/2 tbsp Vegan Nutritional Savoury Flakes
1. Place all the ingredients in a food processor or NutriBullet. Blitz until blended and hey presto, you’ve got pesto!
2. You can add a tbsp of water to loosen if needed, season to taste with salt and pepper.
We topped our pesto onto nourish bowl of roasted pumpkin, zucchini noodles, charred broccoli, avocado, cucumber, peas, radish, purple cabbage, nuts and seeds.
