Creamy Vegan Pesto Pasta

It’s World Vegan Day, so to celebrate I have created a creamy vegan pesto recipe to show just how simple and easy vegan cooking can be.

This pesto is of course absolutely delicious with pasta, but it’s also incredibly diverse and can be used in a multitude of other recipes including stirred into salads, roasted vegetables and even spread onto flatbreads.

Find the recipe below, and my IGTV video here.

Creamy Vegan Pesto

Serves 2

  • 2 cups Basil (50g)
  • 1/2 cup Pine Nuts (70g)
  • 2 tbsp Nutritional Yeast
  • 2 tbsp Olive Oil
  • 2 tbsp Water
  • Pinch Salt and Pepper
  • 2 cloves Garlic, peeled
  • 1/2 Lemon, juice only

 

If making pesto pasta:

  • 180g Pasta (I like to use brown rice fusilli)
  • Large handful Vine Tomatoes, roasted 
  • Fresh Basil, to garnish 

 

  1. Add all pesto ingredients to a food processor and blend until desired pesto consistency is reached. You can lightly toast the pine nuts in a dry frying pan to add a depth of flavour, but this is optional. 
  2. Stir the pesto into the cooked pasta and stir in the roasted tomatoes.
  3. Serve in bowls and garnish with some fresh basil.
