Traditional pesto uses Parmesan cheese. We’ve replaced the cheesy component with nutritional yeast which has a lovely sharp cheesy flavour, It’s not technically raw, but it’s great for vegans as a source of B vitamins. Great stirred through zucchini pasta and on crackers (see recipe here: 
2 Cups Basil
1 Cup Spinach
½ Cup Walnuts
½ Cup Hemp Seeds
4 cloves garlic
1-2TBSP  Nutritional Yeast
2 tsp Lemon Juice
¼ Cup Olive Oil
Salt to taste
Place all ingredients except olive oil in a food processor and pulse till everything is chopped but a little chunky. Adjust lemon juice, nutritional yeast and oil as required. 


Slowly add the olive oil, you can adjust this to make it firmer or smoother as desired.
