Is it possible to make pesto without cheese? The answer is YES: The trick is to use nutritional yeast flakes, which lend a bit of “umami” flavor. You can find it in most grocery stores as well as natural food stores.
This recipe can be customized to your taste: try using cashews, pistachios or pine nuts. We chose walnuts because of their high omega 3 content.
This is great stirred into veggies or as a condiment over your favorite protein.
Place all ingredients in a food processor or high speed blender and blend until well combined.
Store in an airtight glass jar in the refrigerator.
