Purple Pesto

I love purple things. Especially purple food! I squee with excitement when I see purple kale or beans… and when I saw purple basil for the first time, I almost fell over, stumbling to get some, from excitement =D

Purple Pesto

2 cups of loose basil

1 cup of almonds

1 tbsp of nutritional yeast

1/2 cup of extra virgin olive oil

salt & pepper to taste

This recipe is super easy – just combine all of the ingredients in your blender and blend away. Done!

You can serve this over your favourite noodles or keep this rawtastic and serve over some spiralized zucchini. Enjoy =)

  1. wow!! I love doing things in unexpected colors! Once I used green tomatoes to make green pasta sauce… It pretty much tasted the same, but it was completely disorienting! How does the purple basil taste?
