The other secret to this super green pesto?
Adding frozen thawed spinach is an easy way to”bulk up” your pesto. Spinach blends in beautifully with pesto, and it’s a powerhouse of nutrients. It’s also an inexpensive way to extend the amount of pesto you’ve got without sacrificing texture or taste.
How do you make vegan pesto?
The most important difference between routine pesto and vegetarian pesto is that vegan pesto has no cheese.
This pesto still has all the vital ingredients like basil, fresh garlic, nuts (we’ll use cashews instead of the conventional pine nuts), and a bit of olive oil.
Making avocado pesto requires a blender or food processor.
- Add all ingredients to a food processor (that is my fav affordable brand) or high-powered blender: avocado, olive oils, cashews, fresh lemon juice, thawed spinach, and fresh basil (plus salt and pepper!)
- Blend till smooth.
- Add to cooked pasta of choice. Serve chilled or warm.
Amp up your daily life pesto by topping with white beans and chopped cherry tomatoes.
