hey pesto!

vegan nut free basil pesto
Pesto is one of those fab things that makes everything taste awesome. Bagels, pasta, gnocchi, zoodles, veges, meat. You name it, it can be friends with pesto.Recently I blogged about a vegan dinner party I had where I made a totally amazing vegan and nut free raw pesto. It was very fast to make and was a hit. I’m sharing just the pesto part today. The secret to making this pesto not taste boring and drab is the nutritional yeast. Its savoury flavour replaces the need for parmesan cheese. Not only this this pesto vegan, but because I was serving passion of the chia pudding for dessert, I decided to make it nut free as well. Just cause…. well I could!
