Yummy Vegan Pesto Classico

Yummy Vegan Pesto Classico

CANDIEDVIOLET

"This is a classic recipe I use and love. Nutritional yeast is substituted for the traditionally used dairy. Tasty on pasta, bread, sandwiches, omelets, etc. Try adding sun-dried tomato slices post-completion for an added boost of rich flavor. P.S. - It also freezes beautifully."

I didn't like it, not sure if it was the pine nuts or the feel of the yeast ..

I hesitate to rate this recipe because I made it with baby arugula, not basil. Other than that one substitution, I followed the recipe as written. Really excellent pesto - and I imagine it wou...

A burst of taste, delicious recipe! I forgot to add garlic even though I love it, and probably that's why the nuances of ingredients' taste were so strikingly highlighted. I also added a couple...

My whole family loves this one. It's a tricky way to get them to eat raw green vegetables!

Delicious and easy. Really didn't taste any difference between this and regular pesto. I made it with fettuccini, sundried tomatoes, mixed mushrooms, artichokes and baked italian tofu and it w...

yummy! I followed the suggestions of the other reviewers and added in other greens (parsley & swiss chard, what I had on hand). The nutritional yeast gives it a good flavor, and doesn't taste ...

Yummy!! I'm too cheap for pine nuts so I used walnuts; I'm sure pine nuts would have tasted much better!

Great recipe! Needs more basil than just one bunch! Arugula or spinach or a hint of mint is nice too.
