This pesto is really versatile.

You can sub out 1 cup of traditional pesto for this one. For anyone with pine nut or dairy allergies, opt for this recipe! I get AMAZING reviews on this pesto from my family, so it’s a sure fire winner.

 

Also, what really makes this divine is the toasted walnuts.

(I know sometimes, I get lazy and don’t really follow other people’s recipes, but trust me on this one. The extra 10 minutes to roast those bad boys are SO worth it!)

This all-star vegan pesto is my favorite - hands down! It's very lemony, nutty, and jam-packed with flavor. I get a TON of rave reviews on this when I serve it to guests. Plus, most people don't realize it's vegan! When I make this, I lick all the spoons, forks, and bowls very, very clean because I'm so in love with it. Enjoy!
