Vegan Pesto


The vegan pesto sauce is all jarred up and ready to go!

Vegan Pesto Sauce

This vegan pesto sauce is not fat free, but it's not all oil either-it's somewhere in between.  It is made with a combination of olive oil and vegetable broth that gives it a nice deep flavor.  Pine nuts give it a classic pesto texture.  We had in on carrot noodles (carrots strips made with a vegetable peeler).  It would be equally delicious on zucchini noodles or whole wheat pasta.

Ingredients:

  • 1/2 cup basil leaves, tightly packed
  • 2 TBSP pine nuts
  • 2 TBSP olive oil
  • 1/4 cup veggie broth (home made or salt free)
  • 1 clove garlic, peeled
  • 1 tsp fresh lemon juice
  • pinch salt
  • dash pepper

Directions:

  1. Place all of the ingredients into your food processor.  Blend until smooth. 
  2. Pour it over pasta, rice, or veggies!


Yum
