Rawsome Pesto!

Traditional Pesto uses Parmesan cheese. We’ve replaced the cheesy component with nutritional yeast which has a lovely sharp cheesy flavour, It’s not technically raw, but it’s great for vegans as a source of B Vitamins. Great stirred through Zucchini Pasta and on crackers (see recipe here 

2 Cups Basil
1 Cup Spinach
½ Cup Walnuts
½ Cup Hemp Seeds
4 cloves garlic
2/3 Cup Nutritional Yeast
2 tsp Lemon Juice
¼ Cup Olive Oil
Salt to taste


Place all ingredients except olive oil in a food processor and pulse till everything is chopped but a little chunky.

Slowly add the olive oil, you can adjust this to make it firmer or smoother as desired.
