Pesto Pasta (Gluten-Free, Soy-Free, & Nut-Free)
I have a confession to make: I LOVE CARBS! Pasta, bread, potatoes. You name it, I love it. However, being gluten-free (well mostly because I am naughty sometimes) can make this a difficult thing. Thankfully it is 2018 and there are a lot of gluten-free options. My vegan pesto is included in this. Most pesto sauces are gluten-free, however, mine is also soy-free and nut-free as well. So no matter what allergy you have, you can enjoy this without feeling guilty.
1 cup packed basil
1/4 cup sunflower seeds
3 cloves of garlic
1/4 cup vegan parmesan or nutritional yeast
2 tbsp lemon juice
4-5 tbsp water
1/2 cup extra virgin olive oil
Blend all ingredients into a food processor until the consistency is blended well and is creamy.
Store in fridge and use on pasta, salad, etc. Shelf life is 5-6 days.
