Curious about plant protein, how to use it and what are the best plant-based protein foods? I get more and more people are interested in reducing their use of animal products. A shift away from animal products is getting easier with more nutritious plant-based foods available.

 “How can I get enough protein without eating meat?” I guarantee you, it’s easier than you think if you incorporate these sources of plant-based protein.

Regardless of what lifestyle you practice, we all can benefit from a diet rich in plants, along with the fiber, minerals, phytonutrients, and health benefits that they provide.

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!
