Cheezy Plant Based Pesto

Pesto, pesto, pesto! So good you’ll want to put it on everything!


This is one of my go to weekly recipes! I use this pesto on zucchini noodles, or mini mushroom pizzas or just as a dip!

All you’re going to need is a food processor to mix all of the ingredients together. This is super easy so anyone can make it!!

Cheezy Plant Based Pesto

Serves: 5

What you’ll need:

Food processor, spatula, measuring utensils.


1 bunch of fresh basil washed
2 cups of baby spinach
1/3 cup of pine nuts
1/3 cup of raw cashews
1/2 a lemon juiced
1/2 cup of nutritional yeast (savoury yeast flakes)
1 tsp Himalayan pink salt
1 tsp black pepper
3-5 tbs of olive oil


Add all ingredients to the food processor and mix until all combined and smooth.


Use a spatula every few seconds to wipe the edges down so that it all mixes evenly.

This pesto tastes even better the next day, so grab yourself an old jar and store this in the fridge for up to 1 week!

Happy cooking lovelys,
