Health Benefits of this Recipe
Hemp seeds are a wonderful source of plant based protein and omega-3 fatty acids. The use of nutritional yeast provides a dairy free ‘cheesy’ flavour and texture. Nutritional yeast is also packed with B vitamins to support energy levels. Many store bought pesto’s contain canola oil, instead we have used our superfood extra virgin olive oil as a base.
- ½ cup pinenuts
- ¼ cup hemp seeds
- 1 tbsp nutritional yeast
- 1 bunch basil (stems removed)
- ½ cup extra virgin olive oil
1. Place all ingredients into your blending or food processor
2. Blend/process until mixture is well blended but there is still some texture.
Tips & Notes
If you like a thinner consistency gradually add more olive oil and continue blending until desired consistency is achieved.
