Today I am sharing my easy healthy vegan recipe for pesto pasta!
Last summer I started gardening, and I had a huge basil plant!
It was extremely gorgeous and I was so proud of it.
I will plant a new one with it’s seeds.
Ofcourse there’s only so much basil you can use in pasta sauces, so I made this pesto recipe to use it all up!
Mmm delicious pesto pasta!
I paired my pesto with pasta, but ofcourse you can eat anything with pesto.
It can also freeze without a problem ! So double or tripple the recipe if you like!
Portion enough for 500gr pasta
45 leaves (yes i counted lol) of basil
30 gr of pinenuts
4 tbsp of olive oil
salt and pepper to taste
1 (big) clove of garlic
1tsp of nutritional yeast
optional a dash of lemon juice
Wash your basil and press your garlic with your garlic press.
In the meanwhile roast your pine nuts in a skillet until lightly browned with a bit of oil.
Add everything into your blender/mixer until it has your desired texture.
And honestly that’s it, so easy.
I added some extra toasted pine nuts on my pasta for extra taste.
