Pine Nut and Nut Free Pesto Recipe Ingredients:

  • 1 can Artichoke Hearts (14 oz can)
  • 1 Package Fresh Basil Leaves (2oz)
  • 2-4 Cloves Fresh Garlic 
  • 2 tsp Fresh Pure Lemon Juice
  • 1 tsp Olive Oil
  • 1 Cup Chopped Spinach
  • 1/2 Ripe Avocado
  • 1/4 tsp Salt
  • 1/8 tsp Cayenne Pepper
  • 1/4 to 1/2 cup water (to desired thickness and to help blend)
  • 2 tsp Nutritional Yeast Flakes (you can also substitute with a dairy free cheese if desired)

Place all ingredients into a food processor I generally start in the order of the ingredients listed above.

Depending on the size of your food processor or blender you can blend in a couple batches. If needed stir occasionally and pulse until all ingredients are well combined.

If you have any leftovers store in a small container (so there is not a lot of space for air) and seal and store in the fridge. Enjoy this delicious smooth and creamy green sauce!
