  • 50 grams 1 cup fresh basil leaves
  • 1 ½ Tablespoon pine nuts or almonds or walnuts lightly toasted
  • 1 clove of garlic chopped
  • 1 ½ Tablespoon nutritional yeast

  • 1 Tablespoon lemon juice
  • pinch of salt


  • Blend all ingredients in your food processor or blender

I like my pesto quiet coarse, but if you like it very smooth just blend it for longer, and maybe add a little of water to it.
