Vegan Pesto

This recipe requires just 5 minutes, 1 bowl, and 6 ingredients to make.

Creamy
Zesty
Garlicky
Healthy
& EASY to make

The base is fresh parsley and garlic with a splash of lemon juice for acidity and brightness.

To make it a sauce, I rely on a mix of extra virgin olive oil and water. If you’re trying to avoid oil, feel free to sub vegetable broth or water!

The easiest vegan pesto in 5 minutes! Flavorful despite being dairy-free, plus an option for lower oil/fat. It's the perfect plant-based spread!

Nutritious, protein-dense, vegan tempeh burgers. Topped with and a vegan pesto spread. Tempeh is nutritionally dense. Highly nutritious because of the fermentation process, and is packed with protein. The fermentation process binds soybeans into a cake form. It has a strong nutty flavor, holding its shaped when cooked, but absorbs other flavors easily. This fermented soy product is high in probiotics and wide array of vitamins ans minerals. Tempeh and other fermented foods help increase the amount of beneficial bacteria in the gut, which has huge effects on health!

We combined the tempeh in a food processor with sauteed vegetables to form a nutty delicious patty, you will thoroughly enjoy!
