My easy vegan keto pesto is quick to make & so versatile! Use it for pasta, soups, sandwiches, dips, and more! It is high in protein, too.
- In a food processor, pulse the basil, seeds (or nuts), garlic and nutritional yeast until finely chopped. Stop and crape down sides of bowl; process again until a loose paste begins to form.
- Add the water and oil; pulse until desired consistency (rough, or very smooth) is achieved.
- until a thick paste forms, scrapping sides. Add extra virgin olive oil and water, one tablespoon at a time, until smooth. Add sea salt and freshly ground black pepper to taste. Enjoy!
Storage: Store the vegan pesto in an airtight container (jars are great) in the refrigerator for up to 7 days. To free it (it freezes beautifully), divide it in an ice cube tray and, once frozen, pop the cubes into an airtight bag or container (store for up to 6 months).
