White Bean Pesto

White Bean Pesto

This light, oil-free pesto is perfect for summer pasta dishes. It's cheap and easy to whip up, and is also high in veggie protein and fibre. What's not to love...?

Serves 4 people 5 minutes preparation time 10 minutes cooking time

Ingredients

1 tin (400g) white beans, drained - we used butter beans

Two large handfuls fresh basil

2 cloves garlic, minced

Juice 1/2 lemon

Salt and pepper, to taste

1-2 tbsp Nutritional Yeast (or add Parmesan for non-vegan)

Method

1) Place all ingredients into a high-powered blender and blitz until completely smooth, adding a few tablespoons of water if needed to help it become creamy.

2) Season to taste, then serve with cooked Rizopia pasta.
