Vegan Pesto Pasta (GF)


  • 200 g (7 oz) pasta (ensure gluten-free if necessary – I like brown rice spaghetti)

For the pesto*:

  • 30 g (1 oz) fresh basil
  • 1 clove garlic , peeled
  • 2 tablespoons lemon juice
  • 3 tablespoons pine nuts (or sub any other nuts or seeds)
  • 2 tablespoons olive oil (or sub water)
  • 2 tablespoons nutritional yeast
  • Salt + pepper to taste


  • Boil pasta according to instructions on packet – add a handful of frozen green peas if you wish
  • Meanwhile, place all the ingredients for the pesto into a food processor and whizz until smooth – add a little extra water or plant-based milk if you’re having trouble blending it
  • Drain the cooked pasta
  • Add the pesto sauce to the pan with the drained pasta and mix well
  • Enjoy immediately!
