Ingredients for vegan pesto pasta

150 g of pasta (2 people)

1 small avocado

50 g cashews

2 Tbsp of brewer’s yeast

1 handful of fresh basil

2 Tbsp extra virgin olive oil

1 small garlic clove

Juice of ½ lemon

Salt to taste

Pepper to taste

Cherry tomato (to garnish)


Process of making pasta with vegan pesto

To prepare this version of vegan pesto you just have to remember to soak the cashews for at least 2 hours before you start cooking. Then you can remove the water and wash them well.

Start by cooking the pasta, follow the instructions that you will see on the package to get them ideally al dente. Next, add the vegan pesto ingredients to a blender jar and mix the ingredients well.

Once the pasta is cooked, remove most of the water and add the pesto mixture. Let it integrate well with the pasta of your choice even with the fire on. The aromas will be unmistakable.

Serve each portion on a plate, decorate with some cherry tomatoes and add a good splash of extra virgin olive oil. And if you would like to try some more traditional pesto recipes: here they are.
