Homemade Vegan Pesto
Here is my first video I put together to demonstrate how to make pesto sauce. Give the recipe a try and let me know how you enjoy it!
Pesto Sauce Recipe
2 cups basil, packed
1/4 cup pine nuts (or walnuts)
2 Tbsp nutritional yeast flakes
1 Tbsp lemon juice
2 cloves of garlic
Salt to taste
Place all ingredients into a food processor. Blend for about 3-5 minutes or until it is a somewhat smooth consistency. Eat it with pasta, as a pizza sauce, or my favorite, Israeli couscous.
Basil: helps to relieve nervous digestive spasms and headaches associated with indigestion.
Pine Nuts: rich in good fats, protein, vitamin B1, and iron. Helps with nervous disorders and anemia.
