Creamy Vegan Pesto


Nectar Summer Sale

This recipe is slightly different than my No Oil Spicy Vegan Pesto.It has a creamy texture that I find excellent for pasta.  Traditional pesto is loaded with oil.  For this recipe I use avocado and dare I say it is fantastic!  This healthy recipe is loaded with fiber and will leave you with one happy satisfied tummy.  It calls for nutritional yeast and this is a must!  For those unfamiliar with it, nutritional yeast is an amazing cheese substitute.  You can’t tell this pesto is missing parmesan.   I served it with brown rice pasta and it was delicious.  Hope you like it as much as I do!
