How Do I Make Green Goddess Pesto Vegan and Gluten Free?

  1. In a blender or food processor add the basil, parsley, spinach, kale, sage, garlic, olive oil, walnuts, lemon juice, salt, pepper, and bread crumbs or pepper flakes if using.
  2. Pulse in quick bursts until the pesto becomes a thick paste. If it is too thick or isn’t blending properly, add an additional tablespoon of olive oil until it has thinned out.
  3. Toss with cooked pasta, stir into Risotto, or add a scoop to soup.
