Perfect Pesto

Posted by on Sep 20, 2013 in Dips/ Spreads | 0 comments


To make this perfect, dairy free pesto…..gather together the following ingredients :

2 bunches of basil

3 cloves of garlic

2 heaped tablespoons of nutritional yeast flakes (easily found at Health food shops and provides the cheesy flavour)

1 long red chilli – seeds removed and chopped

1/3 of a cup of pine nuts

Juice from half a lemon

Salt and pepper

1/3 of a cup of olive oil.

Put all ingredients aside from the olive oil into a food processor. Whizz for a few minutes whilst slowly drizzling the olive oil into the mix.

This quantity made 400ml of pesto sauce which was just the right amount for 4 hearty spaghetti pesto portions.
