Pesto has been my jam lately for pasta nights! I try my best not to eat tomatoes because they make me all inflamed on the insides and make my brain really foggy. So, I've switched to my no-mato pasta sauce or pesto! What I've also come to realize, I can load this pesto up full of amazing nutrient dense ingredients!
This dish I added grilled chicken on top, but if you're vegan it's good to go!
- 1 1/2 cups Basil
- 1 cup kale or spinach
- 1/2 cup walnuts
- 1/4 cup nutritional yeast
- 3 tbs hemp seeds
-1/2 cup olive oil
- 3 cloves garlic
- salt and pepper
Put all ingredients in food processor and pulse until desired consistency is reached. I used Jovial Grain Free Pasta with Vegan Parmesean and topped with grilled chicken.
FYI, basil is a plant that does oxidize just like avocados, so I would suggest making and eating fresh. You might even notice a color change pretty quickly from food processor to your bowl of spaghetti
You can honestly tell the oxidation of the color of the pesto in the pic!
