Hazelnut Pesto (v, gf)

A delicious vegan pesto made from fresh basil and roasted hazelnuts.



  1. Rinse and pat dry the basil. Remove the leaves from the thick stems and place in a food processor.
  2. Add the hazelnuts, olive oil, garlic, lemon, and nutritional yeast to the food processor. Blend until mostly smooth but still a bit chunky. This takes about 2-3 minutes. Scrape the sides and bottom of the bowl often to make sure everything is incorporated.
  3. Add salt and pepper, to taste. If your nuts are salted, you likely won’t need any salt. If they are unsalted, add a pinch.
