An easy vegan pesto with tons of fresh herbs, nutrient-rich kale, hulled hemp seeds, and nutritional yeast! The perfect 10-minute spread or sauce for Italian night and beyond! Vegan, gluten-free, and oil-free optional. 

Prep Time: 10 minutes.  Makes 1 cup.

INGREDIENTS:

  • 1 cup packed fresh organic basil (large stems removed)
  • 1 cup packed fresh organic parsley (large stems removed)
  • 2 cups packed organic kale
  • 3 TBSP hemp seeds
  • 3 large cloves organic garlic, peeled
  • 1-2 TBSP lemon juice
  • 3-4 TBSP nutritional yeast
  • 1/4 tsp sea salt, plus more to taste
  • 2-3 TBSP extra virgin olive oil (if avoiding oil, sub water)
  • 3-6 TBSP water (plus more as needed)

INSTRUCTIONS:

  1. To a food processor or small blender, add the basil, parsley, kale, nuts/seeds, garlic, lemon juice, nutritional yeast, and sea salt and blend/mix on high until a loose paste forms.

  2. Add olive oil (or water) a little at a time (streaming in while the machine is on if possible) and scrape down sides as needed. Then add 1 Tbsp (15 ml) water at a time until the desired consistency is reached - a thick but pourable sauce.

  3. Taste and adjust flavor as needed, adding more nutritional yeast for cheesy flavor, salt for overall flavor, seeds for “nuttiness” or thickness, garlic for bite/zing, or lemon juice for acidity.

  4. Store covered in the refrigerator up to 5 days. After that, pour into ice cube molds, freeze, and store in the freezer up to 1 month or more.
