I’ve started making pesto from scratch on the fly, using whatever is around the house.  It is so easy to make and goes great on bread, pasta, pizza, etc.! Below is a rough outline, but feel free to play with the amounts to make it your own.  Mix with Follow Your Heart soy-free mayonaise for a great dipping sauce.



1/4-1/3 cup olive oil

4 cups fresh basil

2 cups fresh parsley

2 tablespoons lemon juice

2-3 cloves garlic

1/4 cup pine nuts

1/4 cup cashews

1/4 cup nutritional yeast

1 teaspoon sea salt

Freshly cracked pepper

Place all ingredients in a food processor, and process until well blended.

This sounds great! I like making on the fly pesto too! So many different greens and nuts can work well. I tried it once with lambs quarters and basil. Delicious!
