Hoff's Vegan, Oil-free Pesto Sauce

If your Pesto ain't neon green, it ain't fresh!

Hoff's Vegan, Oil-free Pesto Sauce
Yields: 1 cup 
dairy-free, egg-free, oil-free

  • 4 cups Basil
  • 2 tbsp Pine Nuts
  • 2-3 cloves of Garlic
  • 2 tbsp Nutritional Yeast
  • 1 tbsp Whole Flax Seed
  • 1 tbsp Bragg Liquid Aminos (or soy sauce)
  • 2 tbsp Water

  1. Combine all ingredients in a blender and blend until smooth - 10-20 seconds
  2. Mix with pasta or rice and serve

My2Cents: It may not look like a lot, but you will have all you need for 1 pound of pasta.  Pesto can also be frozen for later use.  Experiment with different types of nuts, such as walnuts or almonds.  If you don't have enough Basil or none at all, substitute Spinach to make up the difference.  Try substituting 1 tbsp of Miso in replace of the Braggs. Add a block of Tofu for a creamy Pesto.
