This avocado pesto or spread is quick and easy to make and has the yummy cheesy, garlic, basil flavour associated with pesto, but is free of processed oil and dairy.
I used almonds in this recipe but any nut can be used. Try it with walnuts, hazelnuts or even peanuts!
: 15 minutes

: 10 servings
½ cup chopped almonds
4 cups fresh basil leaves, packed
½ cup nutritional yeast (or parmesan)
½ tsp. fine sea salt
3 garlic cloves
½ fresh lemon juice
¼ cup water
NOTE: Keeps well in the fridge 3-5 days. Tastes beautiful, may start to brown.
Do not replace nutritional yeast with regular yeast, it is not the same! Nutritional yeast usually comes in flakes, is a bit salty, a bit nutty and full of vitamin b12.
