Nutso Pesto (Vegan)
5 mins (prep 5)
9 ingredients
4 servings
A vegan twist on traditional pesto! The olives really add a lot of flavor. Modified from the cookbook, Vegetarian Meals for People-on-the-Go, by Vimala Rodgers. I like to toss this with 1/2 pound gluten-free or whole wheat rotini and garnish it with fresh sliced basil and the sliced olives I have left in the can after making this recipe.
