australian NZ VEGAN Mofo - #14 Perfect Pesto

There are so many different recipes for pesto on the internet and cook books but here is how i make mine

1 bunch basil
2 garlic cloves
1/4 cup oil
1/3 cup nutritional yeast
1/4 cup sunflower seeds
1/4 cup pine nuts
1 tbs chia seeds

Blend together and mix into gnocchi or pasta.
Very quick and tasty

Ooo, sunflower seeds...that sounds like a good addition. Will have to try that.

Sounds great! A bit different to the way I make it - I love a bit of vegan parmazano in the mix.

I have a bag of chia seeds idling away in my cupboard. I shall have to try adding some the next time I make pesto.
