Vegan Walnut Pesto

I was never a fan of pesto, but this recipe changed my mind.  I realized I really disliked the flavor of pine nuts.  For some reason, they taste fishy to me (weird, I know).  So instead of the pine nuts, I use walnuts.  So much better!

Pair this with vegetable stacks, pastas or even as a shmeer on some bread!

Vegan Walnut Pesto

If you want to make a large amount, and run out of basil leaves, don't hesitate to throw in some baby spinach or any other leafy greens you have in your plantry! 


vegan pesto:
1 package basil
1 small package chopped walnuts
2 garlic cloves chopped
s + p
evoo (enough to your liking- I tend to use less than more)
nutritional yeast (optional)

Just blend all the above ingredients and you are good to go!
