Pesto is our go-to sauce at the moment. We LOVE basil pesto. It’s so easy to make, herby, fresh, and creamy. We usually make this more traditional vegan pesto which calls for 1/3 cup olive oil but lately, many people have been requesting oil-free recipes. And guess what? Avocado is the perfect substitute for olive oil in pesto.

Ingredients:

  • Fresh Basil
  • Avocado
  • Pine nuts
  • Fresh garlic
  • Nutritional yeast (gives it that cheesy taste)
  • Salt & Pepper
  • Fresh lemon juice
  • Water
