Hey Friends! This is an easy and quick pesto recipe. It’s a bit more of a crumble the a sauce. I skip the oil and most of the times don’t even add garlic. I have found that pecans and walnuts make just as tasty of a pesto as pine nuts and they are way less expensive. Give this a try and I hope you love it as much as I do!
2 Cups of fresh basil leaves
1/2 Cup of Pecans
1 Tbs Nutritional Yeast
1 tsp salt
( optional: 2 cloves of fresh garlic) I add garlic when i make it for pasta, otherwise I skip it and just love the strong basil flavor. )
Wash basil and remove stems
Place in food processor with pecans
Pulse until blended then add nutritional yeast and salt.
Use as topping in salads, pasta’s, soups, etc.
