Pasta With Simple Cashew Pesto (Vegan, Dairy-Free)

A bowl full of pesto pasta never fails to brighten up your day - and, we think, is one of the most comforting foods you can find! This vegan and dairy-free twist on classic pesto is made using cashews and Nutritional Yeast, and is ready in just minutes. Dig in...

Serves 4 people 5 preparation time 10 cooking time

Ingredients

400g Rizopia pasta of choice

1 large bunch fresh basil, torn

100g cashews

3-4 tbsp olive oil

2-3 tbsp Nutritional Yeast

Juice 1/2 lemon

2 cloves garlic, minced

Salt and pepper, to taste

Method

1) Cook pasta according to packet instructions, then drain and set aside.
