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, gluten-free

  • 4 cups Basil
  • 1/3 cup frozen Peas or 9 oz. fresh Spinach
  • 2 tbsp Pine Nuts/Cashews/Any Nut
  • 2 tbsp Nutritional Yeast
  • 2 tbsp Braggs 
  • 2-3 cloves of Garlic
  • 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.  Add a block of Tofu for a creamy Pesto.
